The Empire of Virtus Hominis is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.059 billion Imperials are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Megacity Alpha. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Homini economy, worth 113 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 107,166 credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, The Emperor can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, and the newest shade developed by Virtus Hominis's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Virtus Hominis's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Emperor.

Virtus Hominis is ranked 7,783rd in the world and 472nd in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 9,463.96 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
