The Freeroaming Folks of Vicken is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vixen Queene Laniel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.798 billion Vickenians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingfisher Town. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vickenian economy, worth 241 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 134,506 Jots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Jot mansions, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, communists in Vicken note that wealth should be equal but that some should have more of that equality than others, and fashion models are guaranteed to be 100% genuinely as anorexic as they appear on magazine covers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 12,007th in the world and 367th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,718.93 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
