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. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 19.009 billion 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 69%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Uranium Mining.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, priests are being drafted by the church load, the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, and citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets. 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 2nd in Monkey Island and 2,306th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 11 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
