Population1.793 billion



The Armed Republic of Verdunnia is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.793 billion Verdunnians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaux-Meuse. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Verdunnian economy, worth 150 trillion Verds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,138 Verds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Verdunnian military unleashed its biological weapons, condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, and the nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verdunnia's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Verdunnia is ranked 222,527th in the world and 9,220th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 75.5 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
