The Republic of Another former VP is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation.

Mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank.
