The Meteorological Office of Vandrel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Archie Bell with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 33.763 billion Vandrelians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jaberwoky. The average income tax rate is 9.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Vandrelian economy, worth a remarkable 3,238 trillion Drels a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,924 Drels, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, getting your license is a rite of passage for young adults, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Vandrel's national animal is the Jubjub Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vandrel is ranked 231,618th in the world and 12th in The Arctic for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -13.18 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
