The Republic of Vinicius Franco is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 568 million Vinicius Francoans 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Vinicius Francoan economy, worth 39.3 trillion Franco Republicanos 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 69,241 Franco Republicanos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schoolchildren must pass a six-month Ethics and Safety Committee Assessment before they are allowed to mix baking soda and vinegar, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, and concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vinicius Franco's national animal is the Tubarao branco, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vinicius Franco is ranked 171,673rd in the world and 6,669th in Osiris for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
