The Armed Republic of Ducen Viagua is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, cynical population of 471 million Ducen Viaguans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 31.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ducen Viaguan economy, worth 25.2 trillion Pesetas a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,574 Pesetas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, war criminals are given full state funerals, and no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Ducen Viagua's national animal is the Inken Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Ducen Viagua is ranked 139,835th in the world and 5,838th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 87,919 Standard Monetary Units.
