The United Socialist States of Verguile is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Lord Lothor Hamstrings with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.331 billion Verguileans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, 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.

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, and its currency is the Kronz.

Verguile is ranked 4,032nd in the South Pacific and 112,066th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -8 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
