The Republic of AFTER VOTING EARLY AND OFTEN VINNY is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 2.977 billion AFTER VOTING EARLY AND OFTEN VINNYians 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 medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 35.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant AFTER VOTING EARLY AND OFTEN VINNYian economy, worth 33.7 trillion florins 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, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. 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 11,320 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AFTER VOTING EARLY AND OFTEN VINNY's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

AFTER VOTING EARLY AND OFTEN VINNY is ranked 120,632nd in the world and 650th in Artificial Solar System for Longest Average Lifespans, with 58.58 Years.
