The Kingdom of Vloetia is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its public floggings, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 156 million 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 10.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vloetian economy, worth 12.6 trillion Zeemerks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 80,474 Zeemerks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, everybody's got wood thanks to Leader, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, and the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances. Crime is totally unknown. Vloetia's national animal is the Seagull.

Vloetia is ranked 40,418th in the world and 1,899th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 89.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
