The United Communes of Verketa is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ser'at Akal with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.171 billion Verketans 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, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vakt. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Verketan economy, worth a remarkable 1,009 trillion Vas 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 significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 163,562 Vas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government funds large training centres to turn Daegars into functioning members of society, people say chess victor Ser'at Akal can kill you with mind-bullets, the government is hungry to spread communism beyond the nation's borders, and every week is blindness awareness week. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verketa's national animal is the Daegar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Natural Sciences.

Verketa is ranked 17,832nd in the world and 536th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 77.86 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
