The Most Serene Republic of Virillum is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by First Citizen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.697 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victory Town. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Virillumian economy, worth 199 trillion Shillings a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,803 Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing number of animal species are named 'Bob', modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, police officers find government bureaucracy more terrifying than most serial killers, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 37,408th in the world and 1,736th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 69.48 on the Human Development Index.
