The Republic of BEFORE ESCADE COULD DOSS HIM VINNY is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 5.399 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, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 47.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Vinny economy, worth 47.7 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 Book Publishing, Retail, Cheese Exports, 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 8,836 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 200,612th in the world and 4,962nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring -97 on the Rand Index.
