The Federal Republic of Viviser is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 665 million Viviserians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 30.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Viviserian economy, worth 78.2 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 117,663 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Farmers in arid regions are puzzled with government directions to plant rice this year, constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, and mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Viviser's national animal is the rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Viviser is ranked 19,378th in the world and 1,063rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 83.51 on the Human Development Index.
