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 zero percent divorce rate, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.024 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 16,509 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 659,739 Gold Death Certificates, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,648,192 per year while the poor average 110,138, a ratio of 24.0 to 1.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, the government is rumored to hire body doubles whose full-time jobs are to cry at public events, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Great Necropolis as a backdrop, and police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom. 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 76,624th in the world and 313th in NationStates for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 455.08 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
