The Republic of Veris Islands is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 647 million Verisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adelaide. The average income tax rate is 7.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Verisian economy, worth 90.6 trillion Verisian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 140,092 Verisian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, and claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Veris Islands's national animal is the Verisian Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Veris Islands is ranked 16,258th in the world and 1st in Veris Administrative Region for Most Developed, scoring 79.41 on the Human Development Index.
