The Republic of Verpills is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 45 million Verpillsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 28.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Verpillsian economy, worth 1.91 trillion deniers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,428 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, young men in tiny bikinis draw neither comment nor stares on the morning commute, 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail, and NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verpills's national animal is the wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Verpills is ranked 130,848th in the world and 5,628th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 30.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
