The Order of Voxum Mortalum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Grand Master with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.804 billion Mortalumians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkspace. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Voxum Mortalumian economy, worth a remarkable 4,420 trillion mortalias a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 298,576 mortalias, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, and the art of conversation has been rediscovered. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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, and its national religion is immortalism.

Voxum Mortalum is ranked 1st in Europeia and 149th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,701.35 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
