Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grim Wastelands of The Souless Damned is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Wart with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.358 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, moralistic, 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 Great Necropolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Souless Damnedian economy, worth an astonishing 17,472 trillion Gold Death Certificates a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is a breathtaking 638,669 Gold Death Certificates, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,097,889 per year while the poor average 145,810, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

Meals are now followed by thirty minutes of mandatory exercise, 3 Tailed Scorpions are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Necronism.

The Souless Damned is ranked 151,237th in the world and 474th in NationStates for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 6.15 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
