The Dominion of Victislavia is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.466 billion Victislavians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 45.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Victislavian economy, worth 44.3 trillion septims a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Woodchip Exports, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,233 septims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign leaders who don't applaud Leader's speeches are regarded as enemies of Victislavia, it turns out that money can buy you happiness, an alabaster statue of an ancient cat-deity takes pride of place in the centre of Victislavia City, and it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Victislavia City. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Victislavia's national animal is the honey badger, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Victislavia is ranked 95,532nd in the world and 24th in Hartfelden for Best Weather, with 103 meters of sunlight.
