The Supreme Sovereignty of The Seven Archangels is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mikhail Azarias with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.466 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 4,349 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 300,637 arches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The single fish caught by Virisian fishers last year is cited as evidence of The Seven Archangels's thriving fisheries, reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, and popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs. 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 78,789th in the world and 3,360th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,306.79 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
