The Police State of Vinitas is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Aldrich IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.291 billion Vinitians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silverstreak. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Vinitasian economy, worth 576 trillion federal credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,073 federal credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, Vinitas isn't what it used to be, and trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vinitas's national animal is the buffalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Vinitas is ranked 196,273rd in the world and 243rd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Least Corrupt Governments, with 67.9 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
