The Greater Directorate of Vicim is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.736 billion Vicimians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Visear. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Vicimian economy, worth 299 trillion XCoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 172,465 XCoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 488,206 per year while the poor average 48,717, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Patriotic parents remind their children to drink plenty of water, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback, and the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Vicim's national animal is the Rabbit, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is State-Enforced Atheism.

Vicim is ranked 89,622nd in the world and 527th in 10000 Islands for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,829.89 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
