The Confederacy of Vargr Corsairs is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Florence Ambrose with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.211 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.

Bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job. 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 13th in Firefly and 110,268th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -38 on the Enoch Index.
