Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Eminent Domain of Ziggie Valencourt is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ziggie the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 21.73 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 3.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ziggie Valencourtian economy, worth a remarkable 4,714 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 216,965 flamingo droppings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in Monkey Island, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry. 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 46th in Monkey Island and 115,199th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -1,077 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
