The Constitutional Monarchy of Vowpin is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jorsie Lila with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.261 billion Vowpinians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aerian. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vowpinian economy, worth 608 trillion Vowpinian Crowns 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 Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 186,480 Vowpinian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A PhD just ain't what it used to be, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, Vowpinian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and euthanasia is legal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vowpin's national animal is the Vowpinian Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vowpin is ranked 230,253rd in the world and 107th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -11.85 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
