The Principality of Vicurnum is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 6.724 billion Vicurnians 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dorcoast. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Vicurnian economy, worth 706 trillion Baltis 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 led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 105,085 Baltis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Moonshine has made a resurgence, an underground group of geologists hides new discoveries to protect them from being destroyed in the name of safety, trade deals are born to the sound of a royal woman's anguished screams, and the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vicurnum's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vicurnum is ranked 8,281st in the world and 533rd in Balder for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 6,237.64 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
