The Smoking Hot of Virgolia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dictator with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.287 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, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Virgolian economy, worth a remarkable 1,665 trillion Children a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 315,104 Children, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former slave-owners hope there are no hard feelings when they apply for jobs from their erstwhile charges, it is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, Harry Potter books are banned, and the derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Virgolia's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Wrath.

Virgolia is ranked 222,064th in the world and 8,973rd in The East Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -29.6 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
