The Republic of VPR 010 is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 885 million VPR 010ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 54.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong VPR 010ian economy, worth 63.5 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,701 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, homeless people dying of starvation are thought to be a necessary cost of preventing terrorism, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VPR 010's national animal is the fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

VPR 010 is ranked 189,604th in the world and 7,505th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.78 Obesity Rate.
