The Federation of Vantruvia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 340 million Vantruvians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 35.2%.

The strong Vantruvian economy, worth 20.8 trillion Asthems a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 61,094 Asthems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, international tensions are high as Vantruvia threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, and Vantruvia has designated Vantruvia City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vantruvia's national animal is the Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Vantruvia is ranked 38,485th in the world and 1,398th in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 3,949.92 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
