The Black Moon of Viscondy is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Praetor Conrad Pascal Rosenheimer with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.84 billion Viscondians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antrica. The average income tax rate is 38.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Viscondian economy, worth 958 trillion Vucats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,374 Vucats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Cash-strapped politicians frequently host bake sales to fund their campaigns, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, surveillance cameras are banned, and members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods. Crime is totally unknown. Viscondy's national animal is the Corvid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Therapy.

Viscondy is ranked 10,068th in the world and 1st in Homelands for Most Developed, scoring 86.24 on the Human Development Index.
