Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Vargr Corsairs is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Florence Ambrose with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 18.374 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 7,503 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 Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 408,358 Fangs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. 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 342nd in the world and 1st in Firefly for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
