The KINGDOM of VIPERMARTIAN is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tamatsuki Akira with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.329 billion VIPERMARTIANians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of VIPERMARTIAN City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient VIPERMARTIANian economy, worth a remarkable 9,645 trillion ZAMRI MONIES 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 a breathtaking 673,167 ZAMRI MONIES, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Priests are being drafted by the church load, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, and parking's carefree without parking car fees. Crime is totally unknown. VIPERMARTIAN's national animal is the Zorah Magdaros, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Secret.

VIPERMARTIAN is ranked 1,952nd in the world and 98th in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 15,237.97 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
