The Allied States of VPR 0a1 is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 337 million VPR 0a1ians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Education, Defense, and Public Transport are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 56.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant VPR 0a1ian economy, worth 2.42 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 Furniture Restoration, Retail, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 7,176 Banks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest political memes depict Leader as an overly-choreographed robot, saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, VPR 0a1ians believe the only thing that will make you happy is being unhappy with who you are, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VPR 0a1's national animal is the Card, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

VPR 0a1 is ranked 204,030th in the world and 8,395th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -98.67 on the Rand Index.
