The Bordertown of Vroenhoven is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by some pharao with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 25.971 billion Vroenhovenians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of maastricht. The average income tax rate is 9.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vroenhovenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,592 trillion euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 138,311 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Contestants on Vroenhoven's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, the line of people waiting for a visa interview in front of foreign embassies is typically a mile long, and patriotic parents remind their children to drink plenty of water. Crime is well under control. Vroenhoven's national animal is the dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Vroenhoven is ranked 54,324th in the world and 13th in Vlaanderen for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,773.73 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
