The Empire of Visburgh is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Victoria the first with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.125 billion Visburghians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carmilla. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Visburghian economy, worth 739 trillion Đồngs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,221 Đồngs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, costumed characters wearing Maxtopian Grass leaves remind citizens that the government now sells the green stuff, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Visburgh's national animal is the Unicorn but without horn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Visburgh is ranked 204,549th in the world and 9,077th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.53 Crimes Per Hour.
