The Republic of Verate is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 201 million Verateans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 28.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Veratean economy, worth 13.4 trillion libres a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 66,595 libres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Verateans are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verate's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Verate is ranked 133,975th in the world and 35th in Auctor for Most Pro-Market, scoring 36.29 on the Rand Index.
