The Progressive Republic of VuVuVaz is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Cody Camille Veronica Vu Broderick with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.387 billion VuVuVazians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eegatustees. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The VuVuVazian economy, worth 238 trillion Wongas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Retail. Average income is 70,434 Wongas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, Cody Camille Veronica Vu Broderick's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VuVuVaz's national animal is the Qwinty, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Order of the Violets.

VuVuVaz is ranked 13,253rd in the world and 679th in Osiris for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,961.39 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
