The Queen's State of VF is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its burgeoning deer population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.927 billion VFians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 19%, but much higher for the wealthy. A tiny private sector is dominated by the Pizza Delivery industry.
High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate and voting is voluntary. Crime is moderate. VF's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the betale.
VF is ranked 43,439th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -15 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
