The Marquisate of Vivanco is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Petrio Raimundo the III with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.934 billion Vivanquians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, 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 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vivanquian economy, worth 400 trillion Repuroes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,450 Repuroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every workday begins with group therapy, party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises, religious leaders order congregants to love any neighbour who is just like themselves, and the love has gone in Vivanco. 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 Paganism.

Vivanco is ranked 26,251st in the world and 754th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 499.05257643948 Days.
