The Republic of BEFORE CHINGIS BECAME USEFUL VINNY is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 5.545 billion BEFORE CHINGIS BECAME USEFUL 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 large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 42.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant BEFORE CHINGIS BECAME USEFUL VINNYian economy, worth 54.3 trillion marks 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, Soda Sales, Cheese Exports, 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 9,801 marks, 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. BEFORE CHINGIS BECAME USEFUL VINNY's national animal is the cobra.

BEFORE CHINGIS BECAME USEFUL VINNY is ranked 184,938th in the world and 2,165th in Artificial Solar System for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 351.09 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
