OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federation of Veradica is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Aaron with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.532 billion Veradicans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Social Welfare, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Law & Order receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Augusta Veradica. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Euthanasia is legal, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, and private law firms are unheard of. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Veradica's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Veradican dollar.

Veradica is ranked 272nd in Balder and 7,520th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 154 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
