BEFORE MAKING BREAKFAST VINNY

The Republic of BEFORE MAKING BREAKFAST 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 5.477 billion BEFORE MAKING BREAKFAST 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 Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 45.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant BEFORE MAKING BREAKFAST VINNYian economy, worth 53.2 trillion pesos 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, Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. 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 9,716 pesos, 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 MAKING BREAKFAST VINNY's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

BEFORE MAKING BREAKFAST VINNY is ranked 191,033rd in the world and 2,001st in Artificial Solar System for Most Politically Free, scoring 8 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
