The Intruder of Amanita Verna is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 6.021 billion Intruders are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Agraces City. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Intruder economy, worth 107 trillion A Random Currencies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 17,777 A Random Currencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Primary candidates are replaced if they fail to compliment Leader's hair, the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins, property owners are terrified of pigeons nesting in their buildings, and serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amanita Verna's national animal is the A Random Animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Amanita Verna is ranked 250,262nd in the world and 451st in Frozen Circle for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -55.23 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
