The Confederacy of Vargr Corsairs is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Florence Ambrose with a fair hand, and notable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.932 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lair Family Fun Center. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Gambling.

Vargr Corsairs is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the Vargr Corsairs Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, drunk drivers are sentenced to death, and nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Vargr Corsairs's national animal is the Hamster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Fang.

Vargr Corsairs is ranked 6th in Firefly and 61,902nd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -22 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
