The People's Republic of Invernessia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Academy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.2 billion Invernessians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ferguson. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Invernessian economy, worth 397 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 180,458 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Laborers are building walls and making Wezeltonia pay for it, citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. Crime is totally unknown. Invernessia's national animal is the Dragon sheep, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Linear Algebra.

Invernessia is ranked 11,989th in the world and 177th in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 91.14 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
