The Federal Republic of Viriju is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Benjo Guinez with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.686 billion Virijuans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aja q Sol. The average income tax rate is 51.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Virijuan economy, worth 224 trillion Viroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 60,988 Viroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Benjo Guinez to meetings with foreign heads of state, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, and the 'three Rs' have become the 'four Rs' with the addition of Rightful Thought. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Viriju's national animal is the Puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Viriju is ranked 105,293rd in the world and 3,655th in the West Pacific for Most Average, scoring 39.03 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
