The Commonwealth of Devernia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Natanael Saldanha with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.321 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 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Devernite economy, worth a remarkable 1,527 trillion Devernite Pesos a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 241,661 Devernite Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, and newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words'. Crime is totally unknown. Devernia's national animal is the Red-Nosed Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Devernia is ranked 1,070th in the world and 1st in Melhorian Sea for Most Inclusive, scoring 356 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
