The Allied States of VPR 077 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 339 million VPR 077ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 47.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant VPR 077ian economy, worth 3.30 trillion Banks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,721 Banks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe, new legislators take a week-long class entitled "Keeping Your Job: How to Avoid Offending Leader", the diplomatic corps stinks, and judges are rumored to find in favor of whoever bribes them the most. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VPR 077's national animal is the Card.

VPR 077 is ranked 203,191st in the world and 8,315th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -97.6 on the Rand Index.
