The Eminent Domain of Ziggie Valencourt is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ziggie the Great with an iron fist, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 19.815 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 75%, 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.

Men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, shock troops shock enemy forces with their nudity, government officials across Ziggie Valencourt are being "encouraged" to adopt flaming flamingoes to set an example for the populace, and the government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?'. 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 1st in Monkey Island and 1,124th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 308.2 Insults Per Minute (net).
