None; they're about two centuries away from having the technology.

Only two? I thought Verduria was supposed to be 17th-centuryish. Or are Verdurians ahead of Earth contemporaries on the path to radio and television tech?
So take this body at sunset to the great stream whose pulses start in the blue hills, and let these ashes drift from the Long Bridge where only a late gull breaks that deep and populous grave.

Radio was discovered in the 1890s. Two centuries before that was 1690.

(S)he's probably thinking of the dictionary of modern verdurian (http://www.zompist.com/secret.htm), which was created so the appropriate vocabulary to talk about modern stuff was availible.

There's no real way to say where they are in terms of our cultural evolution. Who says technology has to progress in the same way on a diffeent world as it has on Earth?
