Verdant Haven

Population5.849 billion

LeaderIskandar Viridi


The Federated Bailiwicks of Verdant Haven is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Iskandar Viridi with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.849 billion Havenians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haventia. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Verdant Havenian economy, worth 842 trillion Verdethalers a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,072 Verdethalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The countryside is shrouded by wind farms, in a fit of passion Iskandar Viridi has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Verdant Haven's national animal is the Thylacine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Verdant Haven is ranked 2,547th in the world and 49th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.97 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
