The Grand Republic of Versail is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Commandant Drummond with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.233 billion Versais are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oxsana. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Versailian economy, worth an astonishing 10,955 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 492,758 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's museums are real penny-pinchers, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, declaring that "some kids are just born evil" is not endearing Commandant Drummond to progressive thinkers, and gift baskets often contain working nukes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Versail's national animal is the Brown Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Christian.

Versail is ranked 6,282nd in the world and 49th in Osiris for Most Influential, scoring 11,032 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
