The Kingdom of Vikingiarchy is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ragnar Lodbrok with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, strictly enforced bedtime, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.729 billion Vikings are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hedeby. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Vikingiarchyian economy, worth 99.5 trillion Raven Pennies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,537 Raven Pennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Alcoholism is the newest import from Dàguó, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vikingiarchy's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Norrøn.

Vikingiarchy is ranked 39,059th in the world and 1,799th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 68.6 on the Human Development Index.
