The Federal Republic of Visois is a very large, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 178 million Visians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.3%.

The powerhouse Visian economy, worth 15.5 trillion Royals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 87,049 Royals, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Visian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and imitation is the sincerest form of felony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Visois's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Visois is ranked 86,185th in the world and 77th in The United Empires of Carson for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,185.82 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
