The Meritocratic Technocrasy of Maverique is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Darrien Maverick with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-working, democratic population of 6.883 billion Maveriqueans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maverick Point. The average income tax rate is 20.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maveriquean economy, worth a remarkable 1,792 trillion Drakes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 260,388 Drakes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, Darrien Maverick can be seen doing doughnuts in a new Rambogini, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, and the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods". Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Maverique's national animal is the Silverback Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnostic Atheism.

Maverique is ranked 2,915th in the world and 15th in Equilism for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 21,934.52 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
