Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Eminent Domain of Ziggie Valencourt is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ziggie the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 20.982 billion Ziggie Valencourtians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 3.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ziggie Valencourtian economy, worth a remarkable 4,443 trillion flamingo droppings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 211,787 flamingo droppings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Ziggie Valencourt's national animal is the flaming flamingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ziggie Valencourt is ranked 1st in Monkey Island and 1,980th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 8 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
