The Eminent Domain of Ziggie Valencourt is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ziggie the Great with an even hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 21.541 billion Ziggie Valencourtians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
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 4.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ziggie Valencourtian economy, worth a remarkable 4,665 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 common. Average income is an amazing 216,573 flamingo droppings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Ziggie the Great's mistress is the belle at many state balls, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. 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 3rd in Monkey Island and 5,928th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 395 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
