The Holy Empire of Vewri is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor David II with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.374 billion Vewrians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pendragon. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Vewrian economy, worth a remarkable 5,025 trillion Golds 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology and Tourism. 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 259,387 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The well-to-do in Lazarus are never on time for important appointments, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vewri's national animal is the Frost Leviathan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vewrianism.

Vewri is ranked 236,273rd in the world and 7,937th in Lazarus for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -17.27 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
