The Technocratic Directorate of Vicim is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Director with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.01 billion Vicimians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Visear. The average income tax rate is 41.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vicimian economy, worth 355 trillion XCoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 176,893 XCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, a degree in Director Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, shanty towns have formed around the newly rebuilt commercial district, and bad decisions are made very quickly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vicim's national animal is the Rabbit, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Vicim is ranked 9,493rd in the world and 164th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 12,161.61 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
