Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Eminent Domain of Ziggie Valencourt is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ziggie the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, conspicuous electricity pylons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 24.938 billion Valencourtians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ziggie City. The average income tax rate is 6.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valencourtian economy, worth a remarkable 5,664 trillion flamingo droppings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 227,136 flamingo droppings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, and sushi just hasn't been the same since salmon went extinct overnight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ziggie Valencourt's national animal is the flaming flamingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ziggie Valencourt is ranked 159,117th in the world and 9th in Monkey Island for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 8.35 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
