The Divine Empire of Lower Wardandian is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Silent Empress with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.469 billion Lower Wardandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lower Wardandian economy, worth 314 trillion Divine Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 127,447 Divine Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Neighbourhood gossips whip up controversy about those receiving adult merchandise, it is typical to be greeted by a string of curse words in Lower Wardandian restaurants, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, and using "inspect element" is grounds for espionage charges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lower Wardandian's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Church of the Empress.

Lower Wardandian is ranked 58,505th in the world and 20th in Pax Britannia for Highest Economic Output, with 314 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
