The People's Republic of Vernest Quill is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mistress Audrey with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.612 billion Vernest Quillians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Octopia. The average income tax rate is 58.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Vernest Quillian economy, worth 212 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,209 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy, former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vernest Quill's national animal is the Siberian Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vernest Quill is ranked 179,745th in the world and 7,954th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -6.32 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
