Verdant Haven

Population2.9 billion

LeaderPresident Iskandar Viridi


The Federated Bailiwicks of Verdant Haven is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Iskandar Viridi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.9 billion Havenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haventia. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Verdant Havenian economy, worth 366 trillion Verdethalers a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,492 Verdethalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Verdant Haven's national animal is the Thylacine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Verdant Haven is ranked 96,227th in the world and 129th in Forest for Most Pro-Market, scoring 42.22 on the Rand Index.
