The Allied States of VPR 0a3 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 478 million VPR 0a3ians 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 48.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant VPR 0a3ian economy, worth 2.56 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 Trout Farming and Book Publishing. 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 5,348 Banks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People can get away with murder these days, meetings are often scheduled for "about four-ish" following complete conversion to sundials, biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, and justice is blinding. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VPR 0a3's national animal is the Card, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

VPR 0a3 is ranked 204,706th in the world and 8,071st in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -99 on the Rand Index.
