The Scorched Badlands of The Newest of Virginia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Violet Markov with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.388 billion Virginians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Administration and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luxe Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Virginienze economy, worth 248 trillion newest dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 179,057 newest dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,217,373 per year while the poor average 9,621, a ratio of 126 to 1.

A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities, and kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Newest of Virginia's national animal is the timber rattlesnake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Newest of Virginia is ranked 218,235th in the world and 7th in Crimson Hook Federation for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 7.2 Tourists Per Hour.
