The Empire of Virdalonja is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Friederik Hanover with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.615 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, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andros. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The powerhouse Virdalonjan economy, worth a remarkable 3,057 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 242,355 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Virdalonjan delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", the government has an odd policy of calling snap elections at its lowest ebb of popularity, the nation is regarded as a paragon of democracy, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Friederik Hanover's wardrobe. 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 30,973rd in the world and 1,438th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,199.29 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
