The Shattered Communities of Veceria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Grand Archon with a fair hand, and notable for its enslaved workforce, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 22.103 billion Vecerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Environment, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of VCS Manticore. The average income tax rate is 42.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vecerian economy, worth a remarkable 2,671 trillion Galactic Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,844 Galactic Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, in a fit of passion the Grand Archon has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Veceria's national animal is the Tiny Kitten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sarcasm.

Veceria is ranked 9,947th in the world and 6th in Kotturheim for Longest Average Lifespans, with 86.07 Years.
