The Fədəratəd Bailiwicks of Verdant Haven is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Iskandar Viridi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.329 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, 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 1,657 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 177,714 Vərdəthalərs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, electricians spend more time in school than doctors, and hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region. 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 9,578th in the world and 67th in Forest for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 407.86 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
