The Community of Vir153 is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The compassionate, devout population of 652 million Vir153ians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 39.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Vir153ian economy, worth 43.5 trillion Monies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 66,647 Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, ten-year-olds are applying for lemonade stand operator licences, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and Leader's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vir153's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Vir153 is ranked 41,548th in the world and 20th in Virgolia for Highest Poor Incomes, with 44,247.26 Standard Monetary Units.
