The Imperium of Vipra is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Imperatrix Thanalli Alataryx with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.844 billion Viprans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bathurdul. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Vipran economy, worth a remarkable 4,881 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 163,575 marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 634,390 per year while the poor average 28,890, a ratio of 22.0 to 1.

It is mandatory for men to stay home to fix funny noises in the attic, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and motels cater primarily to adulterers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Vipra's national animal is the Tiger Shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Juntism.

Vipra is ranked 212,801st in the world and 3rd in The TSAR for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 13.44 Tourists Per Hour.
