The Allied States of VPR 0b0 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 529 million VPR 0b0ians 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 44.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant VPR 0b0ian economy, worth 4.13 trillion Banks 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 black market in Soda Sales, Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 7,806 Banks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, religious classes are compulsory for all school students, health-conscious denizens drink their dogs' water, and the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VPR 0b0's national animal is the Card, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

VPR 0b0 is ranked 150,687th in the world and 5,729th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring zero on the Hickory Productivity Index.
