The The Pheonix Empire of Vedan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Krogon Dragargon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of public education, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.459 billion Vedanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggdrasil. The average income tax rate is 65.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Vedanian economy, worth 762 trillion Edensias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 139,639 Edensias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government maintains that belief brings greater security than money or a roof, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Vedanian mussels the biggest in The anti world assembly, and employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Vedan's national animal is the Rockbiter, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lucernism.

Vedan is ranked 151,025th in the world and 18th in The anti world assembly for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -6.54 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
