Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Over-Dressed Word Slingers of Vash Stampede is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, parental licensing program, and smutty television. The hard-working population of 19.681 billion Vash Stampedeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.1%.

The very strong Vash Stampedean economy, worth 823 trillion Krylls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 41,818 Krylls, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Gun ownership is compulsory, the government seizes all major gold finds, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, and small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vash Stampede's national animal is the Dizla, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Vash Stampede is ranked 142,478th in the world and 38th in Catlandatopia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -3.1 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
