The Federation of Virifortis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Marcos Cardoso with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.484 billion Virifortisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Planápolis. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Virifortisian economy, worth 632 trillion Aurums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 141,145 Aurums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, chests full of green leaves dumped into the harbor have many murmuring against the government, and bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Virifortis's national animal is the Hyacinth Macaw, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Virifortis is ranked 255,269th in the world and 4,433rd in the South Pacific for Most Devout, with 6.86 prayers per hour.
