The Federal Republic of Viperos is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Grand Marshal Von Schneider with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.368 billion Viperosians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viperos City. The average income tax rate is 77.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Viperosian economy, worth 324 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,021 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The new one Dollar coin also makes a handy throwing-star, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, the decision to be oppressed is now made democratically, and politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Viperos's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon.

Viperos is ranked 151,125th in the world and 5,634th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring 26.89 on the Rand Index.
