The Federal Republic of Vilbonde is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Executive Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 10.9 billion Vilbondeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Founder's Bay. The average income tax rate is 48.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vilbondean economy, worth a remarkable 1,682 trillion credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 154,344 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The cruise missile launchers on the field hospital roof are purely deterrent in purpose, the government prefers to leave the past buried, Vilbonde's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and recreational drug businesses are regularly pruned if they grow above the maximum legal size. Crime is totally unknown. Vilbonde's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vilbonde is ranked 222,972nd in the world and 10,857th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -2.11 on the Hayek Index.
