The Dictatorship of Vivedin is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Tarmo Bergeron with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.234 billion Vivedinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government is mainly concerned with Commerce, although Education and Healthcare are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arsburg. The average income tax rate is 22%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Pizza Delivery and Book Publishing.

A fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Vivedin's national animal is the owlbear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Jasdin, and its currency is the electrum.

Vivedin is ranked 3,074th in The North Pacific and 70,186th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -30 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
