The Mean and Curmudgeonly Nation of Vile Villans is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.564 billion Vile Villansians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villanosia. The average income tax rate is 96%. 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.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, protests are illegal, criminals are thrown to the Kodiaks to repay their debt to society, and crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vile Villans's national animal is the Kodiak, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Villanism, and its currency is the Pound.

Vile Villans is ranked 111th in Gatesville Inc and 96,711th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -1 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
