The Benevolent Dictatorship of Vipathe is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Palaiokrates with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.122 billion Vipatheans 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vindinum Vitae. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vipathean economy, worth 600 trillion Drachmas a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 192,211 Drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

A light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, light entertainment isn't dead, and battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vipathe's national animal is the Caracal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Personality.

Vipathe is ranked 254,640th in the world and 33rd in Union of Nationalists for Least Corrupt Governments, with 17.84 percentage of bribes refused.
