The Verdean Union is a supranational organization intended towards fostering the cooperation and economic development of nations in the Verdean Archipelago. It is also responsible for ensuring rule of law, human rights, and democracy throughout the Archipelago, as well as encouraging the development of socialist economies in the region. Its legal framework was adopted in the Pan-Verdean conference of DI 199, which itself entered into force the following year with the formal creation of the Verdean Union. Currently 272,962,428 people are citizens in a nation that is a full member of the Verdean Union,

The Verdean Union has served to foster the creation of a common market, as well as sponsoring an organization, the Pan-Verdean Restoration Corps, an organization dedicated to rebuilding the Verdean nations after the Capisarian occupation of the Archipelago. The Verdean Union is one of the primary supranational organizations of Greater Meridon, and is a partner of the larger Meridonian Union.

The Verdean Union establishes rules via the Central Council which is composed of fifteen members (three per full member nation), one whom is appointed general secretary. New legislation is passed on a two-thirds majority the council.
