Verdan, officially the Republic of Verdan (High Gallic: Républicque du Verdan), is a country in southwestern Borealis. Verdan is bordered to the west by Deseret, to the northeast by TBD, and to the south by the Isidorian Sea. The nation is a unitary state composed of six provinces. The capital is the city of Aix. Relative to the rest of the world, Verdan's population is average though its population density is above-average. The climate is temperate, with hot summers by the coast tempering off as the elevation rises into mountains in the nation's northern provinces.

Verdan is perhaps best-known as a revolutionary state, having overthrown its monarchical government at the end of the 18th century and been governed as a republic ever since. The beginning of the 20th century likewise ushered in great change in the nation after another revolution saw the establishment of a new socio-economic order. While functionally a social democracy subject to markets, unions and syndicates wield a great deal of power, though the precise degree of power waxes and wanes according to the government of the day and the will of the people. The Parliament (Gallic: Parlement) is the unicameral legislature of Verdan and leader of the ruling party becomes the Doyen: the head of state and chief of the executive branch.

The national economy is highly developed, though officially very decentralized. The majority of industry and workplace regulations are not mandated by the government but instead by the unions. Only banking, vital social services, and utilities are entirely regulated by the government and even in these sectors, unions play important roles. The economy is largely driven by light manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, cereal production, mining, and post-industrial activities.
