The Pseudoexistent Republic of Verderiesdre is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Brellini Enzo Fischer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.955 billion Verderians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berevesk. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Verderian economy, worth 666 trillion Sherlings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 168,474 Sherlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, and school lockers are filled with fancy underwear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verderiesdre's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Verderiesdre is ranked 5,317th in the world and 284th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 108.93 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
