The Katyusha-Humming Partisans of Fischia Il Vento is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 12.707 billion Fischia Il Ventoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Fischia Il Ventoan economy, worth 139 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 10,968 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fischia Il Vento's national animal is the guerrilla fighter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fischia Il Vento is ranked 153,950th in the world and 2,074th in Artificial Solar System for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.37 Crimes Per Hour.
