The Financial Services of Visa Gold is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Visa Inc with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, strictly enforced bedtime, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.143 billion Visa Goldians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foster City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The all-consuming Visa Goldian economy, worth 453 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 109,356 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 520,244 per year while the poor average 13,533, a ratio of 38.4 to 1.

Wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, bins outnumber trees in city parks, and most people suffer from some form of hearing loss. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Visa Gold's national animal is the great white shark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Visa.

Visa Gold is ranked 159,116th in the world and 148th in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 559.34 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
