The Supreme Water States of Vernalfalls is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Urdi with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 12.215 billion Vernalans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vernalfalls City. The average income tax rate is 63.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Vernalfallsian economy, worth 362 trillion Waterfalls 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 29,656 Waterfalls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and a large concrete wall is being built around the country's borders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vernalfalls's national animal is the Frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fakism.

Vernalfalls is ranked 223,679th in the world and 13th in The Meme Must Go On for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 34,195 Standard Monetary Units.
