Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population1.566 billion



The Kingdom of Vloetia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Wilhelmus with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory vegetarianism, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.566 billion Vloetians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Errisen. The average income tax rate is 22.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Vloetian economy, worth 137 trillion Zeemerks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,805 Zeemerks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, recognizing the Vloetian flag qualifies you for citizenship, and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. Crime is totally unknown. Vloetia's national animal is the Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Vloetia is ranked 134,516th in the world and 5,800th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 36 on the Rand Index.
