The Matriarchy of Vernazua is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 114 million Vernazuans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 30.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Vernazuan economy, worth 4.40 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 38,558 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vernazua's national animal is the Swan.

Vernazua is ranked 134,552nd in the world and 26th in The Coalition of Socialists for Highest Economic Output, with 4.40 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
