Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Eminent Domain of Ziggie Valencourt is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ziggie the Great with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 22.896 billion Ziggie Valencourtians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 4.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ziggie Valencourtian economy, worth a remarkable 4,932 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 215,411 flamingo droppings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Ziggie Valencourt's many privately-owned prisons, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. 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 36th in Monkey Island and 134,350th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -212 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
