The Federal Republic of Verdeu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Boxhead with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, digital currency, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.423 billion Verdruans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mondo. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Verdeuan economy, worth 517 trillion Armen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,949 Armen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and skin-tone prom dresses are more unpopular than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verdeu's national animal is the Winged Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Classical Spaghetti Monsterism.

Verdeu is ranked 262,667th in the world and 343rd in The Free Nations Region for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.65 crimes per hour.
