The Republic of Verytas
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Republic of Verytas is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 539 million Verytasians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veritas. The average income tax rate is 60.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Verytasian economy, worth 62.0 trillion cryptoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 114,988 cryptoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, the death penalty has been reintroduced, and hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verytas's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
