OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Aristocratic Republic of Verdon is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 8.896 billion Verdonians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Camarga. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Verdonian economy, worth 612 trillion Escus a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,896 Escus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border, the tawdry celebrity gossip section has moved to the front page of most newspapers, where there's smoke there's the Verdonian Forestry Department, and religious education is a new government priority. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verdon's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Verdon is ranked 150,366th in the world and 169th in The Western Isles for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -54.06 on the Hayek Index.
