The Empire of Voninstein is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Wilson with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.894 billion Voninstinians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shikoline. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Voninstinian economy, worth 250 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,019 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, voting is voluntary, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Voninstein's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
