The People's Republic of Invernessia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Academy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.881 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ferguson. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Invernessian economy, worth 312 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 166,231 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Invernessia's border. 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 15,699th in the world and 225th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 8,490.48 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
