The Kingdom of Western Vapia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Umberto II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.057 billion Vapians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rovigia. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Vapian economy, worth a remarkable 2,278 trillion Lire a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 376,159 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Vapian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Western Vapia's radio stations, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and King Umberto II's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Western Vapia's national animal is the Grey Alpine Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Vapian Catholicism.

Western Vapia is ranked 2,761st in the world and 93rd in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 7,817.37 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
