Verdant Haven

Population7.218 billion

LeaderIskandar Viridi


The Federated Bailiwicks of Verdant Haven is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Iskandar Viridi with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.218 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, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haventia. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Verdant Havenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,081 trillion Verdethalers a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,875 Verdethalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for Iskandar Viridi's eyes only', the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, and rumor has it that Iskandar Viridi has won three lotteries in a row. 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 1,947th in the world and 46th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.32 percentage of bribes refused.
