The Leader Knows All State of Virgolia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, avowedly heterosexual populace, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.802 billion Virgolians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of El Capitolio. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Virgolian economy, worth a remarkable 1,040 trillion Children a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 273,567 Children, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,914,397 per year while the poor average 13,428, a ratio of 142 to 1.

The nation's exceedingly polite children have often been referred to as "robots" by international media, military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Child battlesuits, and 90% of active duty VAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Virgolia's national animal is the Weeb, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of The Leader.

Virgolia is ranked 174,234th in the world and 7,946th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 1.88 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
