The United Introverts of VW53Aland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by VW53a with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.864 billion VW53Alandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sciroccoville. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient VW53Alandian economy, worth 463 trillion florins a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,393 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, and ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VW53Aland's national animal is the cat-dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Holy wholly.

VW53Aland is ranked 224,315th in the world and 8,970th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -23.07 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
