The Empire of Virdalonja is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Friederik Hanover with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.635 billion Virdalonjans 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 large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andros. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Virdalonjan economy, worth a remarkable 3,603 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 246,199 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Friederik Hanover is famed for giving great back rubs, many politicians are having to do a hard day's work for the first time in their careers, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, and claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Virdalonja's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Virdalonja is ranked 614th in the world and 439th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 197 Valid Endorsements.
