The Republic of Veris Islands is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 318 million Verisians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adelaide. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The all-consuming Verisian economy, worth 37.0 trillion Verisian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 116,318 Verisian Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 364,768 per year while the poor average 28,420, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

Convicted conmen and fraudsters often leave prison to enter a career in politics, there's never enough space in space, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, and toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Veris Islands's national animal is the Verisian Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Veris Islands is ranked 144,253rd in the world and 1st in Veris Administrative Region for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.55 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
