The Fiefdom of Vidare is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Fearless Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 43.114 billion Vidareans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vidarean economy, worth an astonishing 14,534 trillion large shiny coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 337,126 large shiny coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,125,126 per year while the poor average 3,449, a ratio of 906 to 1.

Military spending recently hit a new high, Vidare's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians, the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Vidare's national animal is the rabid squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a Cult of Personality.

Vidare is ranked 219th in the world and 12th in Lazarus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 3.13 million Standard Monetary Units.
