The Freethinking Reasonableness of Viinborg is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by an elected Prime Minister with an even hand, and renowned for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate population of 11.624 billion Viinborgians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liege. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Viinborg's national animal is the Brown Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is of course nonexistent, and its currency is the Borg.

Viinborg is ranked 2nd in Knowledge Guild and 121,682nd in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -23 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
