The Eternal Paradise of Verteger is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mister Verteger with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 2.478 billion Vertegerians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gran Verteger. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Vertegerian economy, worth 71.5 trillion vergs a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 28,862 vergs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Untold millions of vergs are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, the government insists that bizarre Lilliputian language game shows were made domestically, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verteger's national animal is the worg, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Verteger is ranked 151,852nd in the world and 788th in Europeia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 26.5 on the Rand Index.
