Location: Monkey Island


The Eminent Domain of Ziggie Valencourt is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ziggie the Great with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 20.386 billion Ziggie Valencourtians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 78%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.

Foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, the internet has been placed under government control, and the government is seen as openly hostile to all religion. 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, and its currency is the flamingo dropping.

Ziggie Valencourt is ranked 1st in Monkey Island and 1,951st in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 11 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
