The Democratic Empire of Virifortis is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 518 million Virifortisians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belos Montes. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Virifortisian economy, worth 46.4 trillion Aurums a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,574 Aurums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Replacement organs are grown in vats, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, and 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Virifortis's national animal is the Chameleon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Virifortis is ranked 40,427th in the world and 1,171st in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 144.27 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
