The Over-Dressed Word Slingers of Vash Stampede is a gargantuan, devout nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 16.409 billion Vash Stampedeans 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 Education, Social Welfare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40%. A small private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Gun ownership is compulsory, the government seizes all major gold finds, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, and small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vash Stampede's national animal is the Dizla, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Kryll.

Vash Stampede is ranked 17th in Catlandatopia and 55,459th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 2 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
