The Islands of Versilia

Population4.455 billion

LeaderQueen Akeldama I


The Lucky Easter egg seekers of The Islands of Versilia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Akeldama I with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.455 billion Versilians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hebigawa. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Versilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,040 trillion Araus a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 233,551 Araus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, drunk leprechauns pelt countryside ramblers with gold coins (The Islands of Versilia has found 6 easter eggs), the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, and soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Islands of Versilia's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kremvhism.

The Islands of Versilia is ranked 982nd in the world and 3rd in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Most Cultured, scoring 295 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
