“Squirrels and squirrels and squirrels, oh my!”

The Commonwealth of Vanska is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 548 million Vanskanii are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nutz. The average income tax rate is 52.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Vanskani economy, worth 42.0 trillion Cees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 76,643 Cees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Throwing a sickie is a serious crime, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, voting is voluntary, and the prevalence of circular logic frequently renders parliamentary observers dizzy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vanska's national animal is the squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
