The United Communes of Verketa is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, avant-garde cinema, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.983 billion Verketans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vakt. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Verketan economy, worth 958 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 160,267 Vas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Write-in candidate 'Leader Sucks' is perennially popular, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room.

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.
