The Federal Republic of Veretstania is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister James Voltan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.206 billion Veretians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dekaster. The average income tax rate is 41.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Veretstanian economy, worth 113 trillion Veretian Dimes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 93,863 Veretian Dimes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Veretstania's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Humanism.

Veretstania is ranked 96,055th in the world and 4,761st in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,453.77 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
