The Religious Dictatorship of Vonihove is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.098 billion Vonihoveans 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 enormous, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Parifier. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Vonihovean economy, worth 48.9 trillion Dreyzns 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 Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 44,544 Dreyzns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey, a valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales', citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and government ministers claim to ride dragons to work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vonihove's national animal is the Mopardi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vonihove is ranked 37,916th in the world and 3rd in Confederation of the Mediterranean for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 66.66 Effective Tax Rate.
