The Kingdom of Vivess Greis is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 469 million Vivess Greisians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 53.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Vivess Greisian economy, worth 18.9 trillion florins a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,239 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, supervisors in Vivess Greis commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vivess Greis's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vivess Greis is ranked 54,458th in the world and 2,633rd in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 53.87 Effective Tax Rate.
