The Federal Republic of Viperos is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 901 million Viperosians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viperos City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Viperosian economy, worth 98.2 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,967 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Only native-born Viperosians who have never left the nation are permitted to run for office, prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Viperos's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Viperos is ranked 7,707th in the world and 227th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6,328.25 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
