The Federal Republic of Verdeu is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sir Boxhead with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.729 billion Verdruans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mondo. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Verdeuan economy, worth 551 trillion Armen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,521 Armen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Skin-tone prom dresses are more unpopular than ever, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, a video of Sir Boxhead wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, and regional governors use national law books as toilet paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verdeu's national animal is the Winged Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Classical Spaghetti Monsterism.

Verdeu is ranked 19,039th in the world and 57th in The Free Nations Region for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 99.09 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
