The People's Republic of Invernessia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Academy with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.546 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 Education, Healthcare, and Administration 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 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Invernessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,163 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 major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 255,976 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national anthem passes the Turing Test, dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Ferguson Times is sold out, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. 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 258,577th in the world and 1,226th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.14 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
