The Free State of Voerdeland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Abel Thiers with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 8.612 billion enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beaufort. The average income tax rate is 70%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Tourism and Gambling.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and all forms of advertising are banned. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Voerdeland's national animal is the Narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the Shilling.

Voerdeland is ranked 5th in International Democratic Union and 2,663rd in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 39 Whatever.
