The Most Serene Republic of Virillum is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 354 million 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victory Town. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Virillumian economy, worth 13.4 trillion Shillings a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,926 Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Leader, and government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 70,055th in the world and 3,698th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,298.82 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
