The Order of Voxum Mortalum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Grand Master with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.686 billion Mortalumians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkspace. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Highschool principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, citizens select which government department gets their income tax mortalias each year, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Darkspace Times is sold out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Voxum Mortalum's national animal is the Undead Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is immortalism, and its currency is the mortalia.

Voxum Mortalum is ranked 2nd in Europe and 81st in the world for Best Weather, with 1,491 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
