The Most Serene Republic of Virillum is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Charles Edward Rose with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.051 billion Virillumians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victory Town. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Virillumian economy, worth 53.1 trillion Shillings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,559 Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national security service are a bunch of crooks, Virillum has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, and the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Virillum's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Virillum is ranked 44,619th in the world and 2,036th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 59.06 on the Human Development Index.
