The Eminent Domain of Ziggie Valencourt is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Ziggie the Great with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 19.567 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 74%, 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.

Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, foreigners are treated with great suspicion, the government has been kicking out foreign corporations in a bid to grow enough food for the populace, and most people suffer from some form of hearing loss. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the flamingo dropping.

Ziggie Valencourt is ranked 47th in Monkey Island and 110,026th in the world for Best Weather, with -572 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
