Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Eminent Domain of Ziggie Valencourt is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ziggie the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 24.286 billion Valencourtians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ziggie City. The average income tax rate is 5.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Valencourtian economy, worth a remarkable 5,435 trillion flamingo droppings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 223,799 flamingo droppings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, all footpaths have tollbooths, and in its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ziggie Valencourt's national animal is the flaming flamingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ziggie Valencourt is ranked 5,725th in the world and 2nd in Monkey Island for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 10,615.57 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
