The Republic of Veris Islands is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mister President with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.281 billion Verisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adelaide. The average income tax rate is 29.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Verisian economy, worth 493 trillion Verisian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 216,429 Verisian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime is totally unknown. Veris Islands's national animal is the Verisian Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Veris Islands is ranked 61,419th in the world and 1st in Veris Administrative Region for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,478.92 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
