The City State of Noir Vic is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Monsieur Noir with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.24 billion Noir are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Noir City. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Noir economy, worth 307 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 137,074 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only adults may purchase violent video games, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, Monsieur Noir's personal home is one of Osiris's most notorious party destinations, and the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noir Vic's national animal is the Puma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Noir Vic is ranked 11,278th in the world and 622nd in Osiris for Most Cultured, scoring 104 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
