Verdant Haven

Population3.04 billion

LeaderPresident Iskandar Viridi


The Federated Bailiwicks of Verdant Haven is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Iskandar Viridi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.04 billion Havenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haventia. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Verdant Havenian economy, worth 385 trillion Verdethalers a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,900 Verdethalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, children usually cry on their first day of school, and the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency. 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 8,875th in the world and 39th in Forest for Rudest Citizens, with 111.63 Insults Per Minute.
