The Vacationerian economy, worth 491 trillion relax coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 38,674 relax coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the government is reining in public spending, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and voting is voluntary. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Vacationer's national animal is the tourists, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
