The COOPERATIVE of Vivien is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by GENERAL SECRETARY OF CENTRAL COMMITTEE with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, disturbing lack of elderly people, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.61 billion PEOPLE 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of VIVIENGRAD. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.7%.

The frighteningly efficient PEOPLE economy, worth a remarkable 3,247 trillion REDFLAGS a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 306,098 REDFLAGS, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

One year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for GENERAL SECRETARY OF CENTRAL COMMITTEE's office, the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, and people experiencing anaphylactic shock are told to buck their ideas up. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Vivien's national animal is the RAT, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the opium of the people.

Vivien is ranked 208,575th in the world and 7,539th in the Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 1.55 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
