The Federal Republic of Vikendi is a small, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 32 million Vikendians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The tiny government prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.
The very strong Vikendian economy, worth 2.27 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 70,965 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.
The tenet of free speech is held dear, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and Vikendi's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Vikendi's national animal is the arctic fox.
