The Supreme Sovereignty of The Seven Archangels is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mikhail Azarias with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.388 billion Virisians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thrones. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Virisian economy, worth a remarkable 4,641 trillion arches a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 301,626 arches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Magna Eagle Dung" has been declared a national treasure, and the government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption. Crime is totally unknown. The Seven Archangels's national animal is the Magna Eagle and its national religion is Aurisium.

The Seven Archangels is ranked 620th in the world and 33rd in Lazarus for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 301,626.38 Standard Monetary Units.
