The Freeroaming Folks of Vicken is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Vixen Queene Laniel with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.618 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingfisher Town. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vickenian economy, worth 194 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 Retail. Average income is an impressive 120,415 Jots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', farmers in arid regions are puzzled with government directions to plant rice this year, Vicken's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, and Vixen Queene Laniel can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 213,527th in the world and 7,112th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.42 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
