The Freeroaming Folks of Vicken is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Vixen Queene Laniel with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.185 billion Vickenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingfisher Town. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vickenian economy, worth 131 trillion Jots 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 110,587 Jots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, the dwindling faithful in the nation make expensive pilgrimages to the remaining places of worship, anti-government web sites are springing up, and the big red machine has ground to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vicken's national animal is the kingfisher, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Animism.

Vicken is ranked 215,695th in the world and 7,418th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 10,395.18 Standard Monetary Units.
