The Disputed Territories of Viktorovitch is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Viktor with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.186 billion Viktorovitchians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viktorgrado. The average income tax rate is 30.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Viktorovitchian economy, worth 888 trillion viktorovitchian shekels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 212,146 viktorovitchian shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Viktorovitch's national animal is the goblin shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Viktorovitch is ranked 12,077th in the world and 1st in Republic of Conservative Nations for Most Politically Free, scoring 93.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
