The Peuples de la Mer of Veaetmar is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Grand Duchess with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, strictly enforced bedtime, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.058 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 29.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Veaetmarian economy, worth 239 trillion dorits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,300 dorits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths, several inches are being added to first class seating, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, and government officials across Veaetmar are being "encouraged" to adopt painted lycaons to set an example for the populace. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, 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 195,133rd in the world and 167th in Thalassia for Most Politically Free, scoring 16.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
