The Virgolia of Virgolia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dictator with an iron fist, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, keen interest in outer space, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.136 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Virgolian economy, worth a remarkable 2,623 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 367,659 Children, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, research grant proposals read like political diatribes, it is broadly agreed that tramp stamps are criminally undesirable, and the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Virgolian Navy. 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 toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Wrath.

Virgolia is ranked 212,248th in the world and 6,655th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -21.35 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
