The Vinlandian Islands

The Oppressed Peoples of The Vinlandian Islands is a large, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 50 million Vinlandian Islanders enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Vinlandian economy, worth 2.01 trillion Vinlandian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 40,113 Vinlandian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, and landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Vinlandian Islands's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Vinlandian Islands is ranked 66,191st in the world and 91st in Wintreath for Most Authoritarian, with 0.32 Stalins.
