The Republic of BEFORE ESCADE COULD DOSS HIM 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 3.429 billion Vinnies 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 47.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Vinny economy, worth 30.8 trillion Emotions 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 black market in Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 8,972 Emotions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BEFORE ESCADE COULD DOSS HIM VINNY's national animal is the Vampire.

BEFORE ESCADE COULD DOSS HIM VINNY is ranked 127,447th in the world and 604th in Artificial Solar System for Most Influential, scoring 14 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
