Vibonia Founder

Population2.089 billion


The So-Called Republic of Vibonia Founder is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.089 billion Vibonia Founderians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Vibonia Founderian economy, worth 49.2 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 23,533 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, and the nation solves other countries' human rights problems with a generous dose of violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vibonia Founder's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vibonia Founder is ranked 130,100th in the world and 263rd in Vibonia for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 821.63 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
