The Peuples de la Mer of Veaetmar is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by the Grand Duchess with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.182 billion Veaetmarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holte Upper. The average income tax rate is 30.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Veaetmarian economy, worth 167 trillion dorits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,831 dorits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The newest shade developed by Veaetmar's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', immigrant herding has become a national pastime, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Veaetmar's national animal is the painted lycaon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Veilism.

Veaetmar is ranked 26,836th in the world and 60th in Thalassia for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,418.22 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
