We welcome The Allied States of The Veronicas (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=The+Veronicas), as the 91st member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Allied States of The Veronicas is a tiny, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its hard-working, cynical population of 5 million enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.
The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Social Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture industries.
Crime is a problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. The Veronicas's national animal is the kangaroo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the dollar.
