The Democratic States of Vulprecio is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Knavecrix with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.045 billion Vulprecians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zorrastria. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vulprecian economy, worth 572 trillion Vulpes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,497 Vulpes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Violetist community celebrates bombshells being dropped on Vulprecio, gay men commonly complain about their time of the month, machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vulprecio's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vulprecio is ranked 25,798th in the world and 1,072nd in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,051.18 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
