The Order of Voxum Mortalum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Grand Master with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.474 billion Mortalumians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkspace. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Voxum Mortalumian economy, worth a remarkable 6,153 trillion mortalias a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 216,093 mortalias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, teenagers sit around on their butts all day, and cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Voxum Mortalum's national animal is the Undead Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is immortalism.

Voxum Mortalum is ranked 243,991st in the world and 718th in Europeia for Most Armed, with 0.11 Weapons Per Person.
