The COOPERATIVE of Vivien is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by GENERAL SECRETARY OF CENTRAL COMMITTEE with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.487 billion PEOPLE are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of VIVIENGRAD. The average income tax rate is 39.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient PEOPLE economy, worth a remarkable 2,592 trillion REDFLAGS a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 305,486 REDFLAGS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Legions of police officers force people to move into massive urban apartments, traumatized ex-ambassadors seek treatment for their "desk dissociation", the government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, and tourists are forbidden to enter Native PEOPLE lands. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Vivien's national animal is the RAT, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the opium of the people.

Vivien is ranked 41,947th in the world and 1,438th in the Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 84.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
