The Grim Wastelands of The Souless Damned is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Wart with an iron fist, and renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.243 billion The Souless Damnedians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Necropolis. The average income tax rate is 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Beef-Based Agriculture and Arms Manufacturing.

Daily newspapers are permitted to run only pro-government stories, homosexuality is a crime punishable by death, military spending recently hit a new high, and the government is a law unto itself. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Souless Damned's national animal is the 3 Tailed Scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Necronism, and its currency is the Gold Death Certificate.

The Souless Damned is ranked 1st in The United Northern Countries and 57th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 113 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
