Regional Influence: Unproven


The Confederacy of Vila Boa is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Supreme Council with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.885 billion Vila Boenses enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coralina. The average income tax rate is 60.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vila Boan economy, worth 116 trillion Pequis a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 61,646 Pequis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vila Boa's national animal is the Tuiuiu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vila Boa is ranked 173,751st in the world and 6,125th in The East Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 24,288.77 Standard Monetary Units.
