The Monolithic Holy Empire of Verdunam is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Divine Joeyus Caesar with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.667 billion Verdunians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pelum. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Verdunian economy, worth a remarkable 1,019 trillion gold hetzrems a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 218,407 gold hetzrems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, there's never enough space in space, and the education system has gotten a recent boost in spending. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verdunam's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Cult Of The Divine Joeyus Caesar.
