The Supreme Sovereignty of The Seven Archangels is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Mikhail Azarias with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.111 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 4,906 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 304,542 arches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Thrones make great practice for foreign snipers, Mikhail Azarias's Twitcher account is typically used to share Magna Eagle memes rather than government policy, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and only adults may purchase violent video games. Crime is totally unknown. The Seven Archangels's national animal is the Magna Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Aurisium.

The Seven Archangels is ranked 19,481st in the world and 1,177th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 5,780.04 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
