Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grim Wastelands of The Souless Damned is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Wart with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.82 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.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Necropolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient The Souless Damnedian economy, worth an astonishing 16,331 trillion Gold Death Certificates a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is a breathtaking 658,017 Gold Death Certificates, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,695,184 per year while the poor average 106,213, a ratio of 25.4 to 1.

The Souless Damned's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', the The Souless Damnedian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and political dissidents are cut off from essential services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Souless Damned's national animal is the 3 Tailed Scorpion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Necronism.

The Souless Damned is ranked 29,826th in the world and 54th in NationStates for Most Authoritarian, with 1.32 Stalins.
