The Galactic Socialist Imperium of Grossvietnam is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Premier of the GSI with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.575 billion Grossvietnamese 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 medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Si Gn. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Grossvietnamese economy, worth a remarkable 2,626 trillion Grossvietnam Dongs 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. 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 an amazing 471,144 Grossvietnam Dongs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Grossvietnamese satellites can detect it, and billions of Grossvietnam Dongs are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Grossvietnam's national animal is the Three-headed Oriental Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Neo Marxism-Leninism.

Grossvietnam is ranked 168,486th in the world and 6,627th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -62.44 on the Rand Index.
