The Fədəratəd Bailiwicks of Verdant Haven is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Iskandar Viridi with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.293 billion HavÉnians 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Havəntia. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Verdant Havenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,630 trillion Vərdəthalərs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,445 Vərdəthalərs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Verdant Haven's national animal is the Thylacinə, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Verdant Haven is ranked 282,921st in the world and 314th in Forest for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -23.91 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
