The Golden Retriever Republic of Vilverin is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Dr Woofingtons III with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.182 billion cute dogs 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 large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chin Scritch City. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient cute economy, worth a remarkable 1,142 trillion head pats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,482 head pats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Supervisors in Vilverin commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, recreational drug businesses are regularly pruned if they grow above the maximum legal size, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime is totally unknown. Vilverin's national animal is the leaves in the local park, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vilverin is ranked 214,254th in the world and 291st in Karma for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.4 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
