The Saltiness of Virgolia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, strictly enforced bedtime, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.572 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Law & Order 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 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Virgolian economy, worth a remarkable 1,331 trillion Children a year, is highly 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 291,131 Children, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

The Leader is refusing to make decisions until the Moon is out of Capricorn, police regularly arrest families playing Monopoly, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 13,787th in the world and 407th in The East Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 84,008.13 Standard Monetary Units.
