The Accidental Union of Vacatio Libertas is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Captain Captain with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.235 billion Jack Wagons hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Donkey Kong. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Jack Wagon economy, worth 589 trillion beefs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,697 beefs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness', government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, and homophobia is off the menu. Crime is totally unknown. Vacatio Libertas's national animal is the trabant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Treeism.

Vacatio Libertas is ranked 56,790th in the world and 11th in The Finntopian Region of DOOM for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 76.11 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
