The Republic of Vincent Drake is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Captain Spock with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed population of 12.302 billion Vinnies 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 45.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Vinny economy, worth 596 trillion Late updating regions 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Information Technology. 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 48,522 Late updating regions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Much of Vincent Drake's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, saying "don't do anything that Captain Spock wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Vincent Drake City, and Captain Spock's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vincent Drake's national animal is the Griffon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Defending.

Vincent Drake is ranked 88,201st in the world and 2nd in Kentucky Fried Chicken for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,229 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
