Population1.786 billion



The Armed Republic of Verdunnia is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.786 billion Verdunnians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaux-Meuse. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Verdunnian economy, worth 147 trillion Verds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,311 Verds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Destitute athletes are forced to train in the street, Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Verdunnian military unleashed its biological weapons, condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, and the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verdunnia's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Verdunnia is ranked 30,758th in the world and 1,569th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,233.27 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
