The Grim Wastelands of The Souless Damned is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Wart with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, anti-smoking policies, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.413 billion Souless Damnedians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, 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 Great Necropolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Souless Damnedian economy, worth an astonishing 18,180 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 639,871 Gold Death Certificates, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,217,999 per year while the poor average 134,765, a ratio of 16.5 to 1.

One complaint of The Souless Damned's new periodic table is it's easy to confuse fearlessleaderium with gloriousleaderium, the government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, and it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow. 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 1,240th in the world and 2nd in NationStates for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 20,693.16 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
