The Empire of Veraxi is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.555 billion Veraxians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Veraxian economy, worth 363 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 142,304 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, only adults may purchase violent video games, the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?", and the nation is wading into dangerous waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Veraxi's national animal is the Grey Goo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Veraxi is ranked 10,222nd in the world and 24th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Developed, scoring 90.13 on the Human Development Index.
