The Monolithic Holy Empire of Verdunam is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Divine Joeyus Caesar with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 6.764 billion Verduniams are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pelum. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Verduniam economy, worth a remarkable 1,636 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 241,993 Gold Hetzrems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and organ donation is compulsory. 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 195,156th in the world and 9,520th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -8.2 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
