The Eastern European Kingdom of Vashnal is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Wolfgang Engelbrecht I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, infamous sell-swords, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.521 billion Vashnalli are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krakiv. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vashnalli economy, worth a remarkable 1,969 trillion Vashnalli Rupels a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 157,272 Vashnalli Rupels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Net monetary worth and net moral worth are considered to be directly equivalent, smog in Krakiv is so bad that fresh air bottles are sold by street vendors, political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, and creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vashnal's national animal is the White Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Vashnal is ranked 137,016th in the world and 7th in The Geopolitics Roleplay Region for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -100.11 on the Hayek Index.
