The Empire of Verconia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Vercon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.42 billion Verconians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veltcona. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Verconian economy, worth 281 trillion vercoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 198,225 vercoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
The most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, Verconian tourists are banned from many nations due to their tendency to randomly explode, and the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verconia's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
