The Republic of Vershia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Siberia with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.369 billion Vershians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rondorea. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Vershian economy, worth 629 trillion Vers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,826 Vers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news, homophobia is off the menu, Vershia isn't what it used to be, and inheritance tax has recently been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vershia's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
