Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Free Confederacy of Vecherd is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Federal Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.174 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, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, 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 1,639 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 146,720 Vecherdian pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 503,365 per year while the poor average 31,388, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

The wreckages of bombed planes that litter Vecherd are highly popular tourist destinations, skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, most academic research has ground to a halt, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. 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 30th in Laissez Faireholm and 127,631st in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -12 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
