The Empire of Viktorias is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Lawrence II Captianimicis with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, avowedly heterosexual populace, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.219 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viktoria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Viktorian economy, worth 167 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 137,495 thalers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 637,305 per year while the poor average 17,861, a ratio of 35.7 to 1.

The term cold case has taken on a very literal meaning, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, tour guides tell passengers that there is beautiful architecture just behind the two-hundred-foot concrete walls, and the government is buying children's books by the thousands. 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 49,227th in the world and 318th in Europe for Rudest Citizens, with 71.32 Insults Per Minute.
