The Dictatorship of Vicnormany is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 424 million Vicnormanyians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 50.6%.

The Vicnormanyian economy, worth 17.6 trillion Vicunds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Gambling, Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 41,411 Vicunds, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Bambi has been banned, the right to free speech is being drastically curtailed, referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, and the term "Native Vicnormanyian" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vicnormany's national animal is the Vicundis Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Vicnormany is ranked 136,519th in the world and 18th in Iveagh for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 20.74 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
