The Aristocratic Republic of Verdon is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 11.294 billion Verdonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Camarga. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Verdonian economy, worth 819 trillion Escus a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,547 Escus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Religious education is a new government priority, the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, government agents stalk the aisles of grocery stores for out-of-stock medications, and even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verdon's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Verdon is ranked 87,827th in the world and 99th in The Western Isles for Safest, scoring 81.71 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
