The Virgolia of Virgolia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Dictator with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, avowedly heterosexual populace, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.963 billion Virgolians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Virgolian economy, worth a remarkable 2,022 trillion Children a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 339,136 Children, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dictator has been declared supreme ruler for all eternity, only government officials may operate computers, corporations have to consult a fifty-page "sanctions spreadsheet" to determine which countries they are allowed to do business with, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Virgolia's national animal is the Crow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Wrath.

Virgolia is ranked 231,853rd in the world and 8,795th in The East Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -28.48 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
