The United Republic of Vikanias is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Sean OFearghal with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.468 billion Vikaniasians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Johns. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vikaniasian economy, worth 716 trillion Vikaniasian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,824 Vikaniasian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's never a spare chair in the retirement home, gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, and war memorials have been modified to include hammocks for napping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vikanias's national animal is the Harp Seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Vikanias is ranked 47,935th in the world and 7th in GA IS DANK for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 4,118.05 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
