The Monolithic Holy Empire of Verdunam is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Divine Joeyus Caesar with an even hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 8.172 billion Verduniams have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pelum. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Verduniam economy, worth a remarkable 1,803 trillion Gold Hetzrems 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 amazing 220,674 Gold Hetzrems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Imperial Cult.

Verdunam is ranked 1,454th in the world and 52nd in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 2,029 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
