The COOPERATIVE of Vivien is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by GENERAL SECRETARY OF CENTRAL COMMITTEE with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, anti-smoking policies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.816 billion PEOPLE are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of VIVIENGRAD. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.3%.

The frighteningly efficient PEOPLE economy, worth a remarkable 3,329 trillion REDFLAGS a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 307,835 REDFLAGS, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, the government says that Possession is nine-tenths of the Lore, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, and there is a disproportionate number of poor people in prison. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Vivien's national animal is the RAT, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the opium of the people.

Vivien is ranked 575th in the world and 18th in the Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring 300.07 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
