The Fədəratəd Bailiwicks of Verdant Haven is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Iskandar Viridi with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.358 billion HavÉnians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Havəntia. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Verdant Havenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,666 trillion Vərdəthalərs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,063 Vərdəthalərs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cash-strapped politicians frequently host bake sales to fund their campaigns, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol. Crime is totally unknown. Verdant Haven's national animal is the Thylacinə, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Verdant Haven is ranked 1,748th in the world and 27th in Forest for Most Developed, scoring 98.08 on the Human Development Index.
