The Jingoistic States of VeryAverage is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ol' Jelly Bones with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.194 billion horses are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skeleton City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The frighteningly efficient VeryAveragean economy, worth 147 trillion Laptops a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 123,328 Laptops, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 433,485 per year while the poor average 25,429, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, criminals are thrown to the Dragons to repay their debt to society, tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless, and atheists in the nation feel uneasy living in buildings where they were once vilified. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. VeryAverage's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

VeryAverage is ranked 111,869th in the world and 4,180th in the West Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.21 percentage of bribes refused.
