Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grim Wastelands of The Souless Damned is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Wart with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.261 billion Souless Damnedians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Necropolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Souless Damnedian economy, worth an astonishing 17,365 trillion Gold Death Certificates a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 661,259 Gold Death Certificates, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,742,039 per year while the poor average 104,544, a ratio of 26.2 to 1.

The nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, tax rises are attributed to divine will, and there are no minimum wage laws. 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 452nd in the world and 1st in NationStates for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 24,467.15 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
