The Technocratic Empire of Veradax is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Zealli Sonre with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, smutty television, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.056 billion Veradacians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xoysa. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Veradaxian economy, worth a remarkable 8,161 trillion Xyres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 625,120 Xyres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, and suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Veradax's national animal is the Giant Anteater, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Acolytes of Pathosis.

Veradax is ranked 45th in the world and 3rd in The Alliance of Dictators for Highest Poor Incomes, with 474,801.22 Standard Monetary Units.
