The United Communes of Verketa is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jadah Haeam with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.537 billion Verketana are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sah Seda. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Verketan economy, worth a remarkable 1,276 trillion Vas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 169,418 Vas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, bris parties are all the rage, board shorts have replaced board rooms, and five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verketa's national animal is the Daegar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Natural Sciences.

Verketa is ranked 40,731st in the world and 1,476th in the Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 28.99 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
