The Over-Dressed Word Slingers of Vash Stampede is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and ban on automobiles. The hard-working population of 16.823 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.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.9%.

The very strong Vash Stampedean economy, worth 713 trillion Krylls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. Average income is 42,384 Krylls, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

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 a very well-funded 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.

Vash Stampede is ranked 5th in Catlandatopia and 45,204th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 76 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
