The Nomadic Peoples of Vri is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Jimmy Dero with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.2 billion Vrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jaquelle. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Vrian economy, worth 519 trillion Loaves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 123,801 Loaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vrian scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Vrian satellites can detect it, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, and government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read. Crime is totally unknown. Vri's national animal is the bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vri is ranked 46,084th in the world and 880th in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 228.286138619 Days.
