The Empire of Viktorias is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Lawrence II Captianimicis with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.09 billion Viktorians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viktoria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Viktorian economy, worth 148 trillion thalers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 136,152 thalers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 601,889 per year while the poor average 19,267, a ratio of 31.2 to 1.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, teenagers are making eye contact with each other for the first time in years, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Viktorias's national animal is the chimera, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Viktorias is ranked 126,067th in the world and 607th in Europe for Most Extreme, scoring 16.71 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
