The Federal Republic of Vatnaland is a huge, genial nation, notable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 200 million Vatnalandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 28.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vatnalandian economy, worth 11.3 trillion Klorins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,735 Klorins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, and copyright laws have been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vatnaland's national animal is the Red Fox, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Vatnaland is ranked 154,008th in the world and 8th in Sovereign Union for Fattest Citizens, with 9.57 Obesity Rate.
