Regional Influence: Truckler
The Republic of Another former VP is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.42 billion Another former VPians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, the Environment, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, discarded pennies litter the streets, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, and the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda. Crime is well under control. Another former VP's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the dollar.
