The United Blood Courts of The Islands of Versilia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Akeldama I with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.406 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 relatively small 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 Junahrol. The average income tax rate is 58.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Versilian economy, worth 682 trillion Faraans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 200,414 Faraans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, billions are being spent on a new island airport, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Versilians any less frightened, and a determined opposition debates the relative benefits of Arial and Times New Roman for days on end. Crime is totally unknown. The Islands of Versilia's national animal is the Kingfisher, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Kremvhism.

The Islands of Versilia is ranked 167,697th in the world and 51st in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -21.45 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
