The Dominion of Viperina is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Vipey McViper with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, rampant corporate plagiarism, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.015 billion Vipers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuke Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Viper economy, worth 338 trillion Vipers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 167,952 Vipers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 563,678 per year while the poor average 37,137, a ratio of 15.2 to 1.

Veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Viperina, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Viperina's national animal is the Unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Reformed Unicorns.

Viperina is ranked 132,907th in the world and 4,444th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 290.92 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
