The State of Virq is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Overseer Vir with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.408 billion Virqians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Defense, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Healthcare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rivzai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The very strong Virqian economy, worth 88.7 trillion Qrivs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,999 Qrivs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 257,775 per year while the poor average 10,186, a ratio of 25.3 to 1.

Extreme political groups are outlawed, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, and military training in Virq emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Virq's national animal is the Hellhound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nothingness.

Virq is ranked 68,922nd in the world and 2,750th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,217.89 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
