The Matriarchy of Verotopia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Veronica with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 1.685 billion Verotopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sannborg. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Verotopian economy, worth 170 trillion Canzones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 101,269 Canzones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, military pistols are more secure than the national treasury, and Veronica is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verotopia's national animal is the Wingunicer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wingunicerism.

Verotopia is ranked 12,330th in the world and 1st in Chadsylvania for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 6,915.93 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
