The Dictatorship of Duchess Vivien de Winter is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.744 billion Goths are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 43.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Gothic economy, worth 16.4 trillion crows 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 9,421 crows, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duchess Vivien de Winter's national animal is the raven.

Duchess Vivien de Winter is ranked 212,042nd in the world and 88th in The Vincence Empire for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.37 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
