The Islands of Versilia

The Holy Easter Egg Hunters of The Islands of Versilia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Queen Parthena with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, zero percent divorce rate, and digital currency. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.674 billion Versilians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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 Cyrene. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Versilian economy, worth a remarkable 2,102 trillion auras a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 273,972 auras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Small shoes often wash up on the beach, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Islands of Versilia's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of the Root.

The Islands of Versilia is ranked 70,457th in the world and 10th in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Most Income Equality, scoring 35.9 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
