The Democratic Republic of Viga is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.029 billion Vigans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 23.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vigan economy, worth 78.5 trillion Vigs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 76,312 Vigs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, the armed forces pride themselves on being conventional and predictable, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Viga's national animal is the Dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Viga is ranked 102,891st in the world and 42nd in Ridgefield for Most Cultured, scoring 65 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
