The Commonwealth of VW53Aland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by VW53a with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.631 billion VW53Alandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sciroccoville. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient VW53Alandian economy, worth 253 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,481 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to VW53Aland's border, the wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, and visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VW53Aland's national animal is the cat-dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Holy wholly.

VW53Aland is ranked 28,429th in the world and 548th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 446.47706147672 Days.
