The Most Serene Republic of Virillum is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by First Citizen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.889 billion Virillumians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victory Town. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Virillumian economy, worth 219 trillion Shillings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,808 Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The public are free to vote for whomever the government wants in office, seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Virillum's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Virillum is ranked 191,453rd in the world and 8,410th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.89 Crimes Per Hour.
