The United Socialist States of Verguile is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Lord Lothor Hamstrings with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, hard-working population of 5.904 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Felnoric. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
Military geniuses responsible for brilliant campaigns are drummed out because they have close same-sex friends and an interest in interior design, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour, and priests are being drafted by the church load. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verguile's national animal is the Eagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Kronz.
