LeaderJean de Bordeaux


The Armed Republic of Verdunnia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Jean de Bordeaux with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.413 billion Verdunnians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaux-Meuse. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Verdunnian economy, worth 304 trillion Verds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 89,330 Verds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Charities reserve the right to not help those who go against religious teachings, policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', the once prosperous capital is in utter decline, and stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verdunnia's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Verdunnia is ranked 12,722nd in the world and 660th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 6,243.12 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
