The People's Republic of Vikernia is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, avowedly heterosexual populace, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 226 million Vikernians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Vikernian economy, worth 21.4 trillion social credit points 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 Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 94,805 social credit points, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police insist that racism does not exist, politicians look weirdly alike, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vikernia's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vikernia is ranked 113,636th in the world and 3,242nd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 162.7 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
