The Commonwealth of Devernia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by SAL9000 with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 5.94 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 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Devernite economy, worth a remarkable 1,405 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 236,641 Devernite Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Devernia, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, and passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters. 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 159,065th in the world and 2nd in Melhorian Sea for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 38.67 Workforce Participation Rate.
