The Grand Duchy of Verrentia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate population of 554 million Verrentians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ethopolis. The average income tax rate is 60.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Verrentian economy, worth 43.9 trillion Kuberts 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 79,260 Kuberts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You gots to be part of the Party to get in to the party, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verrentia's national animal is the Pegasus, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Verrentia is ranked 85,593rd in the world and 3,759th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 65.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
