The Free Confederacy of Vecherd is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Federal Council with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.169 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cairlinn. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling industries.

'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, anti-government web sites are springing up, and multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy". Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Vecherd's national animal is the Reindeer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Vecherdian Reformed Judaism, and its currency is the Vecherdian pound.

Vecherd is ranked 16th in Laissez Faireholm and 38,132nd in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 36 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
