The Great Duchy of Vivanco is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Petrio Raimundo the III with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.824 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nueva Petria. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Vivanquian economy, worth 868 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 quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 149,052 Repuroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government defends a woman's right to choose, there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, and stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence. 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 159,275th in the world and 6,263rd in The North Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 508.15 milliStalins.
