The Empire of Virdalonja is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Friederik Hanover with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 11.724 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 isn't funded at all. 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 2,826 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 241,077 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, ample hospital parking is half-filled by the luxury cars of hospital managers, and government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support'. 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 38,272nd in the world and 1,759th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 44.54 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
