The Federal Republic of Viperos is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed population of 188 million Viperosians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 57.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Viperosian economy, worth 12.0 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 63,762 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, the legislature keeps promising "more study" of corruption allegations against the parliamentary whip system, the VBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, and high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Viperos's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Viperos is ranked 130,969th in the world and 4,580th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 29.03 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
