The Confederacy of Vargr Corsairs is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Florence Ambrose with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 15.321 billion Vargr Corsairsians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business 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 6,125 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 Tourism. Average income is an amazing 399,789 Fangs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,783,062 per year while the poor average 55,692, a ratio of 32.0 to 1.

Kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, and the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods. 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 1st in Firefly and 1,454th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 8 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
