The Meritocratic Technocrasy of Maverique is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Darrien Maverick with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, vat-grown people, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 9.744 billion Maveriqueans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maverick Point. The average income tax rate is 49.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maveriquean economy, worth a remarkable 3,077 trillion Drakes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 315,819 Drakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jennifer Government is a bestseller, therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Maverique's national animal is the Silverback Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnostic Atheism.

Maverique is ranked 998th in the world and 2nd in Equilism for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 953.37 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
