Population290 million

CapitalNew Verrk


The Republic of Verrk is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 290 million Verrkians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Verrk. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Verrkian economy, worth 13.0 trillion Verrkes 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 Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 44,892 Verrkes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes, unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, the term cold case has taken on a very literal meaning, and sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verrk's national animal is the kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Verrk is ranked 99,640th in the world and 4,697th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,977.38 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
