The Islands of Versilia

Population9.437 billion

LeaderArchexecutrix Aurelia


The Stato Serenissima of The Islands of Versilia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Archexecutrix Aurelia with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.437 billion Versilians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marmora. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Versilian economy, worth a remarkable 2,743 trillion libras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 290,713 libras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across The Islands of Versilia, autocrats are persona non grata, and the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Islands of Versilia's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Kainosmos.

The Islands of Versilia is ranked 91,907th in the world and 11th in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Most Politically Free, scoring 63.81 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
