The Confederacy of Vargr Corsairs is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Florence Ambrose with a fair hand, and renowned for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.734 billion Vargr Corsairsians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal 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.

The populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, the country is preparing for war, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, and the Vargr Corsairs Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. 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 1st in Firefly and 767th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 296 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
