The Endorse Libertanny of Virgolia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dictator with an iron fist, and notable for its lack of airports, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.996 billion Virgolians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Virgolian economy, worth a remarkable 1,509 trillion Children a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 302,081 Children, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife, children cry as government officials steal their water pistols, anti-environmentalist dissidents must beware of government plants in their midst, and this year's televised Budget Forecast has been cancelled because there was already one last year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Virgolia's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Wrath.

Virgolia is ranked 201,963rd in the world and 8,066th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -15.81 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
