The Holy Empire of Viridus is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Anakin Skywalker with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.602 billion Viridians 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 government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vittoria. The average income tax rate is 65.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Viridian economy, worth a remarkable 1,426 trillion Viridia Marks a year, is fairly diversified and 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 187,636 Viridia Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, chess defeat has made Anakin Skywalker the laughingstock of dictators and grandmasters alike, and sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 193,620th in the world and 70th in Republic of Conservative Nations for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -36.81 on the Hayek Index.
