The Saltiness of Virgolia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, zero percent divorce rate, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.584 billion Virgolians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Capitolio. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Virgolian economy, worth a remarkable 1,347 trillion Children a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 293,957 Children, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, and carrots are orange, apples are red and food waste is increasing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Virgolia's national animal is the Weeb, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of The Leader.

Virgolia is ranked 227,611th in the world and 11,867th in The East Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -21.84 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
