The People's Republic of Divine Great Viet is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.959 billion Vietnamese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 84.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Divine Great Vietian economy, worth 366 trillion Great Viet Dongs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,925 Great Viet Dongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, Divine Great Viet City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, and centuries-old legal documents detailing agnatic-cognatic gavelkind succession are being dusted off again. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Divine Great Viet's national animal is the Lac Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Divine Great Viet is ranked 15,147th in the world and 428th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 300.33 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
