The Grand Duchy of Vivanco is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Petrio Raimundo III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.141 billion Vivanquians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nueva Petria. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vivanquian economy, worth a remarkable 1,992 trillion Repuroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 164,072 Repuroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Endangered bison are herded across the border to prevent them from trampling on native prairie grass, visiting dignitaries often end up cuddling in the hot tub with Petrio Raimundo III, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vivanco's national animal is the boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Lady.

Vivanco is ranked 4,615th in the world and 242nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 117.72 law-abiding acts per hour.
