The Commonwealth of Forest Virginia is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, daily referendums, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 301 million Forest Virginians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.

The thriving Forest Virginian economy, worth 28.2 trillion Greenbacks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 93,611 Greenbacks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 284,019 per year while the poor average 23,985, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

Pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, the government is lending a hand to private industry, money grows on trees, and advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Forest Virginia's national animal is the Flying Squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Forest Virginia is ranked 5,154th in the world and 24th in Forest for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 9,292.9 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
