LeaderEmpress Vyol I Captianimicis


The Empire of Viktorias is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Vyol I Captianimicis with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.136 billion Viktorians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viktoria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Viktorian economy, worth 441 trillion thalers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 140,649 thalers, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign musicians that Empress Vyol I Captianimicis dislikes are turned away at the border, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, suspicious glow-in-the-dark wasps remain a source of terror and awe, and picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Viktorias's national animal is the chimera, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Viktorias is ranked 56,104th in the world and 140th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 9.41 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
