The Great Duchy of Vivanco is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Petrio Raimundo the III with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.331 billion Vivanquians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nueva Petria. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vivanquian economy, worth 925 trillion Repuroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,235 Repuroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation refuses to provide international aid, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, and unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vivanco's national animal is the boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Lady.

Vivanco is ranked 4,884th in the world and 300th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 310 Meters Of Sunlight.
