The Holy Empire of North Villaing is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Chancellor Benio Talotus with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, ritual sacrifices, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.649 billion North Villaingians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Voledo City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.5%.

The frighteningly efficient North Villaingian economy, worth 202 trillion lire a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,601 lire, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 455,668 per year while the poor average 23,178, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

Political activists are routinely executed, suspicious locals close their doors leaving tourists to suffer the elements by themselves, pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, and six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. North Villaing's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Order of Talotus.

North Villaing is ranked 3,133rd in the world and 17th in Europe for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 183.58 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
