The Federation of Veradine is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The United Veradine Assembly with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.884 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 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 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Veradi economy, worth 390 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 Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 135,291 Veradi Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, and cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes. 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 10,241st in the world and 12th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 3 Valid Endorsements.
