The Dominion of Upper Virginia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Thomas Warner with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 29.619 billion Upper Virginians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Law & Order, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Courtland. The average income tax rate is 1.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Upper Virginian economy, worth a remarkable 5,937 trillion Dominion Sovs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 200,479 Dominion Sovs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of Dominion Sovs are spent to take high-quality photos of the Eagle Nebula, the Upper Virginian football team for the Maxxmas ceasefire consists only of Intelligence Corps personnel, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Upper Virginia's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Upper Virginia is ranked 16,430th in the world and 7th in Western Atlantic for Lowest Crime Rates, with 90.48 law-abiding acts per hour.
