The Federal Republic of Vishnya Islands is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its digital currency, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 478 million Vishnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cockatoo City. The average income tax rate is 63.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Vishnya Islandsian economy, worth 47.9 trillion cherries a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,127 cherries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vishnya Islands's national animal is the Cockatoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vishnya Islands is ranked 52,455th in the world and 2,229th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 46.78 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
