Ver Testua

Population2.316 billion



The Community of Ver Testua is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Yegorushka with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, vat-grown people, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.316 billion Ver Testuans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Y-city. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ver Testuan economy, worth 363 trillion deniers a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 156,882 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The native owl population is in permanent hibernation, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, the team in charge of creating a new writing system have spent months deciding whether or not to use serif or sans-serif characters, and pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ver Testua's national animal is the porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Athefarianism.

Ver Testua is ranked 180,785th in the world and 4,529th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 48.8 billion Standard Monetary Units.
