Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Vargr Corsairs is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Florence Ambrose with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 20.182 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 8,398 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 416,126 Fangs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,965,096 per year while the poor average 52,217, a ratio of 37.6 to 1.

Most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, and school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students. 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 18,996th in the world and 3rd in Firefly for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,267.87 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
