The Confederacy of Wraithon is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 1.533 billion Wraithonians 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 enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Wraithonian economy, worth 9.90 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. Average income is 6,455 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wraithon's national animal is the kitten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wraithon is ranked 175,754th in the world and 9th in Voltarium for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 535.67 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
