The Most Serene Republic of Virillum is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 177 million Virillumians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Virillumian economy, worth 6.16 trillion Shillings a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 34,791 Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Priests are being drafted by the church load, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill, and Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Virillumian officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Virillum's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Virillum is ranked 26,432nd in the world and 1,437th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.44 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
