The Empire of Virdalonja is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Friederik Hanover with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 15.168 billion Virdalonjans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andros. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Virdalonjan economy, worth a remarkable 3,742 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 246,707 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, and the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Virdalonja's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Virdalonja is ranked 113,683rd in the world and 5,886th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 33.78 on the Rand Index.
