The Technocratic Empire of Veradax is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Zealli Sonre with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, parental licensing program, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.596 billion Veradacians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xoysa. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Veradaxian economy, worth a remarkable 9,471 trillion Xyres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 648,880 Xyres, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Getting your license is a rite of passage for young adults, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Veradax's national animal is the Giant Anteater, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Acolytes of Pathosis.

Veradax is ranked 1,047th in the world and 2nd in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 34,493.49 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
