The Freeroaming Folks of Vicken is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Vixen Queene Laniel with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.211 billion Vickenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingfisher Town. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vickenian economy, worth 135 trillion Jots a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 111,805 Jots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the big red machine has ground to a halt, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, and some Vickenian athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vicken's national animal is the kingfisher, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Animism.

Vicken is ranked 111,065th in the world and 4,073rd in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 62 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
