The Commonwealth of Devernia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Natanael Saldanha with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.372 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 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 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Devernian economy, worth a remarkable 2,584 trillion Devernian 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 249,140 Devernian Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Natanael Saldanha's new political program is often mockingly called 'Capitalism with a Bigtopian face', the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Devernians, the name of the "Butcher of Bigtopia" adorns shirts across Devernia, and populations of two-headed Red-Nosed Eagles have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites. 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 221,282nd in the world and 1st in Melhorian Sea for Most Devout, with 3.08 Prayers Per Hour.
