The Empire and Lesser Kingdoms of Vandresque is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jean I Bonaparte with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.884 billion Imperials are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liège. The average income tax rate is 51.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Vandresquean economy, worth 162 trillion couronnes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is 86,091 couronnes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

School lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and bars are packed at all hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vandresque's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is state secularism.

Vandresque is ranked 206,988th in the world and 8,710th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.76 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
