The Rogue Nation of Via is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mysim with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.579 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solaris. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing.
The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, politicians live in abject luxury, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Via's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Islam , and its currency is the credit chet.
