Verdant Haven

Population4.666 billion

LeaderIskandar Viridi


The Federated Bailiwicks of Verdant Haven is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Iskandar Viridi with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.666 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 Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haventia. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Verdant Havenian economy, worth 651 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 139,543 Verdethalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Verdant Havenian weed picker are way up, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back. 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 201,721st in the world and 368th in Forest for Fattest Citizens, with 4.96 Obesity Rate.
