The Holy Empire of Viridus is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Rexileus Diros with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.168 billion Viridusians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vittoria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Viridusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,080 trillion Viridia Marks a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 175,155 Viridia Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 659,543 per year while the poor average 32,436, a ratio of 20.3 to 1.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, agricultural employees work for peanuts, and it's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Viridus's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Viridus is ranked 3,032nd in the world and 10th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 13,756.45 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
