The Queen's State of Charles Vernon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 10.782 billion Charles Vernonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Social Policy, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 51.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Charles Vernonian economy, worth 182 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 16,937 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Charles Vernon's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Charles Vernon is ranked 30,886th in the world and 5th in Libertaria for Most Politically Free, scoring 76.89 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
