The Eminent Domain of Ziggie Valencourt is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Ziggie the Great with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 19.799 billion Ziggie Valencourtians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ziggie City. The average income tax rate is 76%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Uranium Mining.

Citizens must have a license to operate a computer, prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, and shock troops shock enemy forces with their nudity. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ziggie Valencourt's national animal is the flaming flamingo, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its currency is the flamingo dropping.

Ziggie Valencourt is ranked 45th in Monkey Island and 100,476th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -99 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
