The United Socialist States of Verguile is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Lothor Hamstrings with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 7.8 billion Verguileans 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.
The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Felnoric. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.
The very strong Verguilean economy, worth 782 trillion Kronzzes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,380 Kronzzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, the government is buying children's books by the thousands, and police officers spend more time on calisthenics than actually catching criminals. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
