The Consular Barúny of Visduc is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Consular Barún Vis with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 887 million Visduci 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Visduc. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Visduci economy, worth 19.0 trillion Visducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 21,464 Visducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, and purchasing a can of Addison Cola requires a wheelbarrow of cash. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Visduc's national animal is the Visduci Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Visduc is ranked 227,133rd in the world and 178th in New Western Empire for Most Secular, with 10.34 Atheism Rate.
