The Dictatorship of Vandalia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its restrictive gun laws and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 15.629 billion Vandalians 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, International Aid, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 41.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Vandalian economy, worth 53.3 trillion Pelts a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 3,408 Pelts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vandalia's national animal is the puma.

Vandalia is ranked 170,694th in the world and 12th in Kentucky for Most Efficient Economies, scoring zero on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
