Vidoria (Vidorian Vidoría /vido'ɾi:a/), officially the Confederacy Of Vidoria (Vidorian Confederación De Vidoría /konfedera'sjon de vido'ɾi:a/), is a country in center-north Rennekka in Aeia. It is bordered by XXX to the west, the Opal Ocean to the north, the XXX Channel in the north-west, Mahisialand in the south and Renneque to the east. It is separated from St. Aratóir by the XXX Channel in the northeast. Vidoria's terrain consists mainly of plateaus, plains and highlands, and the XXX Rainforest in the south-west. The country is subdivided into fourty-two cantons and one autonomous city, Aljuá, which is the capital of the nation.
With a GDP per capita of $35,231, Vidoria has one of the largest GDPs per capita in Rennekka, largely due to its premise in the tourism and automotive industries. It is ranked highly in education, healthcare, quality of life and housing. However, Vidoria still suffers from a high homocide rate per 100,000 inhabitants, with a rate of 14.08 per 100,000 people.

20th Century to Present Day
Benefiting from rich natural resources, a highly literate population, a diversified industrial base and an export-oriented agricultural sector, the economy of Vidoria is the second largest in Rennekka, and fifteenth largest in Aeia. It has a "very high" rating on the Human Development Index and a relatively high GDP per capita, with a considerable internal market size and a growing share of the high-tech sector.
Historically, Vidoria's economic performance has been very uneven, with high economic growth alternating with severe recessions and income maldistribution. Late in the 20th century Vidoria achieved development, and became one of Aeia's richest countries.
High inflation — a weakness of the Vidorian economy for decades — has become a trouble once again, with an annual rate of 21.3% in 2017. Income distribution, having improved since the 1950s, is classified as "low", with a decrease in Gini of 12.3 since 1952.
In 2014, manufacturing accounted for 29.4% of GDP - the largest goods-producing sector in Vidoria's economy - well above the second largest, agriculture, at 7.3% of the GDP. With a production growth rate of 9.8% in 2012, the manufacturing sector rests on a steadily growing network of industrical parks (213 as of 2014).
In 2014 the leading sectors by volume were: electronic parts; motor vehicles and auto parts; alcoholic beverages; steel, aluminium and iron; recording and print media; industrial and farm machinery; home appliances and furniture; and glass and cement. In addition, Vidoria has since long been one of the top five alcoholic beverage producing countries in Aeia, as well as one of the global automobile-producing hubs.
Vinazia is Vidoria's major industrial center, hosting home appliances, motor vehicle and auto parts manufactures. Next in importance is the Greater Sehoría area (food processing, electronic parts, motor vehicles and auto parts, chemicals and petrochemicals, textiles and printing); Viyamueva (food processing, metallurgy, farm machinery, chemicals, and tanning); Dacía (sugar refining); Nibilló (steel milling and metallurgy); and Ushuaia and Bahía Blanca (food processing). Other manufacturing enterprises are located in the provinces of Batambría (zinc and copper smelting, and flour milling); Rúel (electronic parts); and La Plata and Coróna (glass and cement).
Science And Technology
Vidoria is a global leader in science and technology as its achievements in science and technology since 1980 have been significant. Research and development efforts form an integral part in of the economy. It produces the fourth highest number of graduates in science and engineering (21%). Numerous scientists were born in Vidoria, and more have studied in its universities, especially in the fields of physics and chemistry.
Notable Vidorian scientists include Mathieu Alcála, Ramiro Zuloaga, Valentina Rivera, Sheila Romana and Nahuel Jesus, among others. Thiago Tomás introduced the string theory, as well as other major contributions in the field of quantum mechanics. Along with José Luis Abril, he discovered electromagnetic radiation, in which Nahuel Jesus later made major contributions. Magdalena De Carerra discovered Iodine and Europium. Alexis Sagnía was a pioneer in the field of radiochemistry, and Ilan Fabricio and Daiana Bautista were founders of biochemistry.
Research institutions in Vidoria include the Florencío Society, the Gregorio Association, the Sergio Mariano Society and the Ibanéz Organization. The Juán De Sílva Building in Sehoría hosts a facility in the research of fusion power for instance. The Thiago Tomás Prize is granted to five scientists and academics every year. With a maximum of Ᵽ3.5 million per award, it is one of highest endowed research prizes in the world.
Vidoria is the twelfth most visited country in Aeia and the most visited country in Rennekka, with a total of 109 million overnights during 2012. This number includes 108.83 million nights by foreign visitors. In 2017, over 112.4 million international tourists arrived in Vidoria.
Tourism in Vidoria is characterized by its cultural offerings and its ample and varied natural assets. Revenues from international tourists reached 32.41 billion international dollars in 2014, up from US$21.89 billion in 2012. The country's largest city, Sehoría, is the most visited city in Rennekka. There are 34 National Parks in Vidoria, including many WECO Sites.
Education in Vidoria, while administered by the cantons, is regulated by the Federal Department of Education and Welfare. Education is free from ages 5 to 16, and compulsory from ages 6 to 14, although many stay in education until 20.
Primary education lasts from 5 to 14, and is typically separated into two schools, while some primary schools prefer staying as one entity. The curriculum is known to focus on subjects and skills for later life: 15% of a students time is reserved for Life Studies class, which teaches students necessary life skills such as how to write a CV and what rights a citizen has. While final examinations are not compulsory, they are necessary for anyone seeking further education, which over 80% of students do.
Secondary education is the next stage; it lasts 3 to 4 years depending which school is chosen. There are four different types of secondary education:
- Gymnasium schools, which primarily focus on health, the human body and other related subjects.
- Technical schools, which focus on scientific and mechanical studies.
- Arts schools, which focus on the arts.
- Commercial schools, which focus on business, economics and trade.
Tertiary education is the final stage; there are two kinds in Vidoria, universities and institutes. While universities focus on a certain subject, institutes teach a wider variety of subjects, such as Science and Culture. Vidoria has 5 universities and 6 institutes. Vidoria has average tution fees, with the average university tuition costing 3,400 international dollars (10,625 Pessas). Due to this, as well as the majority of Vidorians being middle-class, the anount of Vidorian students that enroll in tertiary tuition is quite high (68%).
Besides many of the common cuisine from southern Asura, such as shrimp and cheese, Vidorians enjoy a variety of indigenous dishes, including patása (mango-stuffed chicken), pinico (beef pie with carrots) and píco (a mixture of vegetables and seafood).
Southern Vidorian cuisine is known for its emphasis on seasonality of food, quality of ingredients and presentation. Southern Vidorian cuisine offers a vast array of local cuisine, as much of the cultural elements of the pre-colonial era are still in use. Meals are typically served in 4 stages: primiéra, secuenda, principalla and dolce. Vidorian croissants are also very popular in the south, ever since their introduction to Vidoria from Renneque.
Northern Vidorian cuisine has much influence from Veleaz. Some dishes include fried fish with potato, cold soups and rice-based dishes. Due to the mass urbanisation of the north coast, many meals also consist of meals from foreign nations, such as ham from Aquidneck, which has gained influence in the eastern areas.
