The Vir165ian economy, worth 30.1 trillion Shiny Green Things a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 45,915 Shiny Green Things, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
