Vas Andsommy

Population585 million


The Democratic Republic of Vas Andsommy is a huge, genial nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 585 million Vas Andsommyians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Vas Andsommyian economy, worth 22.0 trillion golds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,528 golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vas Andsommy has designated Vas Andsommy City as its capital city, engaged partners detail their fiancés' private lives in detail to prurient bureaucrats, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vas Andsommy's national animal is the kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vas Andsommy is ranked 34,208th in the world and 1,049th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,618.23 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
