The Chill Groove of Verve Remixed V is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Benny Goodman with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.105 billion Verves 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, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, with Defense, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coltrane. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Remixed economy, worth 219 trillion Chills a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 104,402 Chills, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 304,558 per year while the poor average 28,279, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

The nation is in perpetual campaign mode, the Jazzman stadiums are open 24/7, most pop videos prominently feature the Remixed flag, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Verves any less frightened. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Verve Remixed V's national animal is the Jazzman, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Chillaxin.

Verve Remixed V is ranked 183,691st in the world and 105th in Last Flight for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -6.32 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
