The Republic of Veris Islands is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 666 million Verisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adelaide. The average income tax rate is 7.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Verisian economy, worth 94.4 trillion Verisian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 141,696 Verisian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Babies are increasingly seen as a luxury, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, Court TV ratings have skyrocketed now that executions are filmed on location, and there's more vermin than ever on the metro. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Veris Islands's national animal is the Verisian Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Veris Islands is ranked 37,181st in the world and 1st in Veris Administrative Region for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,789.86 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
