The Republic of AFTER VOTING EARLY AND OFTEN VINNY is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 4.81 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 39.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant AFTER VOTING EARLY AND OFTEN VINNYian economy, worth 50.3 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, Furniture Restoration, 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 10,458 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 199,790th in the world and 5th in The puppet place for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -13.78 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
