OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Confederacy of Vargr Corsairs is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Florence Ambrose with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.65 billion enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

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

A cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, tourists flock from around the world to see Vargr Corsairs's famed 'rainbow slums', and murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour. 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 1,478th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 12 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
