The Federation of Veradine is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The United Veradine Assembly with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.721 billion Veradi 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lightsbridge. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Veradi economy, worth 643 trillion Veradi Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 136,302 Veradi Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cars have been banned, Veradine successfully hosted the The Coalition of Democratic Nations Olympics, the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations, and the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Veradine's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Veradine is ranked 202,792nd in the world and 53rd in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Most Avoided, scoring 0.37 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
