The Grim Wastelands of The Souless Damned is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Wart with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 35.63 billion Souless Damnedians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Necropolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Souless Damnedian economy, worth an astonishing 24,578 trillion Gold Death Certificates a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 689,836 Gold Death Certificates, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, grim instructresses lead the unwillingly impregnated in chants of "it's all my fault" and "blessed be the fruit", vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, and there is a disproportionate number of poor people in prison. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Souless Damned's national animal is the 3 Tailed Scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Necronism.

The Souless Damned is ranked 136,943rd in the world and 97th in Institute of Cellulose for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.95 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
