The People's Republic of Invernessia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Academy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.839 billion Invernessians 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 medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Environment, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ferguson. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Invernessian economy, worth a remarkable 3,177 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 359,524 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over The Academy's questionably sane new coalition partners, and giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why The Academy is a silly poophead. Crime is totally unknown. Invernessia's national animal is the Dragon sheep, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Linear Algebra.

Invernessia is ranked 1,862nd in the world and 35th in Europe for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 828.57 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
