The Grim Wastelands of The Souless Damned is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Wart with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.775 billion Souless Damnedians 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 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 23,109 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 Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 684,209 Gold Death Certificates, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, Eckie-Ecola has declared that their soda poop is The Real Thing, and immigrants who don't like the taste of Souless Damnedian Turnip Chips are immediately deported. 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 208,953rd in the world and 425th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Longest Average Lifespans, with 26.41 Years.
