The People's Republic of Vernest Quill is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Mistress Audrey with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, national health service, and public floggings. The compassionate population of 834 million 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 medium-sized 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 35.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Vernest Quillian economy, worth 58.4 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,031 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and Mistress Audrey has just been declared ruler of Vernest Quill in an international press conference. 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 100,660th in the world and 5,192nd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 40.44 on the Rand Index.
