Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Most Serene Commonwealth of Vingo is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Serene Doge Anzolo Anafesto XVII with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.609 billion Vingonians 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.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vingo. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vingoan economy, worth 815 trillion ducats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 123,359 ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens must have a license to operate a computer, reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, Serene Doge Anzolo Anafesto XVII's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, and citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vingo's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Antinous.

Vingo is ranked 171,805th in the world and 3,885th in the Rejected Realms for Least Corrupt Governments, with 51.76 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
