The Empire of Vercadina is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Bugbite Swords with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 20.151 billion Vercadinans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rwenzori. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vercadinan economy, worth a remarkable 1,691 trillion Vercadinan Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,933 Vercadinan Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, and autopsies often involve only cursory examination. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vercadina's national animal is the Fire Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Baking.

Vercadina is ranked 254,832nd in the world and 12,104th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -115.92 on the Hayek Index.
