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 remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.975 billion Souless Damnedians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 Souless Damnedian economy, worth an astonishing 17,523 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 frequent. Average income is a breathtaking 674,617 Gold Death Certificates, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,387,933 per year while the poor average 137,608, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, the government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. 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 5,034th in the world and 14th in NationStates for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 12 Valid Endorsements.
