The Virgolia of Virgolia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Dictator with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.973 billion Virgolians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Virgolian economy, worth a remarkable 2,030 trillion Children a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 340,025 Children, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights, and the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Virgolia's national animal is the Crow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Wrath.

Virgolia is ranked 232,056th in the world and 8,790th in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 5 Tourists Per Hour.
