The Federal Republic of Villaing is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Astrid Johansen with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate population of 1.146 billion Villaingians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Telross City. The average income tax rate is 61.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Villaingian economy, worth 136 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,703 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Bars are packed at all hours, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, and politicians cheer the nation's surging death rate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Villaing's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Villaing is ranked 25,558th in the world and 344th in Europe for Largest Governments, scoring 23.92 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
