The Republic of SASSY VINNY is a massive, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.705 billion SASSY 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, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant SASSY VINNYian economy, worth 16.6 trillion baht 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, Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 9,712 baht, 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. SASSY VINNY's national animal is the dove.

SASSY VINNY is ranked 236,069th in the world and 4,773rd in Artificial Solar System for Highest Drug Use, scoring 3.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
