The Empire of Virdalonja is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Friederik Hanover with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 18.117 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, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andros. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Virdalonjan economy, worth a remarkable 4,448 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 common. Average income is an amazing 245,555 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, Virdalonjan husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and rumor has it that Friederik Hanover has won three lotteries in a row. 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 220,707th in the world and 9,172nd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 79.08 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
