The Supreme Sovereignty of The Seven Archangels is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mikhail Azarias with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, soft-spoken computers, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.884 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 4,476 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 300,784 arches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and there's a hole in the heart of every Virisian city. Crime is totally unknown. The Seven Archangels's national animal is the Magna Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Aurisium.

The Seven Archangels is ranked 8,367th in the world and 286th in Lazarus for Largest Populations, with 14.9 billion Capita.
