The Confederacy of Vargr Corsairs is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Florence Ambrose with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.451 billion Vargr Corsairsians 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, 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.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, and military spending is on the increase. 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 15th in Firefly and 112,426th in the world for Safest, scoring -2,100.8 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
