Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Vargr Corsairs is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Florence Ambrose with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 18.741 billion Vargr Corsairsians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lair Family Fun Center. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Vargr Corsairsian economy, worth a remarkable 7,721 trillion Fangs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 412,027 Fangs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Chess hooliganism is on the rise after the banning of organised sports, farmers are struggling to keep up with demand for local produce, airport security is provided by private companies, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. 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. Vargr Corsairs's national animal is the Hamster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Vargr Corsairs is ranked 197th in the world and 1st in Firefly for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 39,523.7 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
