The Republic of Vine Alistan is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its public floggings, lack of airports, and frequent executions. The cynical, devout population of 930 million Vine Alistanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Public Transport, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 48.1%.

The Vine Alistanian economy, worth 45.6 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 48,989 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Election debates consists mostly of two grey suits arguing over how to best preserve the status quo, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, and Leader has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vine Alistan's national animal is the Rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vine Alistan is ranked 206,039th in the world and 764th in Nation of Islam for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.68 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
