The Holy Empire of Viridus is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Rexileus Diros with an iron fist, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, frequent executions, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.896 billion Viridusians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vittoria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Viridusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,022 trillion Viridia Marks a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 173,455 Viridia Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 681,260 per year while the poor average 30,011, a ratio of 22.7 to 1.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, agricultural employees work for peanuts, and it's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Viridus's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Viridus is ranked 164,836th in the world and 282nd in Federation of Conservative Nations for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -12.25 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
