The Free Confederacy of Vecherd is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Federal Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.911 billion Vecherdians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cairlinn. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Vecherdian economy, worth a remarkable 1,479 trillion Vecherdian pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 149,289 Vecherdian pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 512,177 per year while the poor average 31,937, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and the wreckages of bombed planes that litter Vecherd are highly popular tourist destinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Vecherd's national animal is the Reindeer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Vecherdian Reformed Judaism.

Vecherd is ranked 34th in Laissez Faireholm and 108,641st in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -395.5 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
