The Commonwealth of Devernia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Natanael Saldanha with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 7.599 billion Devernians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaerson. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Devernite economy, worth a remarkable 1,869 trillion Devernite Pesos a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 245,957 Devernite Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The art of conversation has been rediscovered, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, and shell-shocked refugees are made to provide Immigration with lively renditions of 'Dancing Queen'. Crime is totally unknown. Devernia's national animal is the Red-Nosed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Devernia is ranked 157th in the world and 1st in Melhorian Sea for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,347.14 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
