Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Vargr Corsairs is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Florence Ambrose with a fair hand, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 20.71 billion Vargr Corsairsians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lair Family Fun Center. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Vargr Corsairsian economy, worth a remarkable 8,634 trillion Fangs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 416,915 Fangs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,987,526 per year while the poor average 51,394, a ratio of 38.7 to 1.

Billions of Fangs are being blown on orbital weapons development, it's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, and matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Vargr Corsairs's national animal is the Hamster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Vargr Corsairs is ranked 44,558th in the world and 5th in Firefly for Most Extreme, scoring 22.98 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
