The Second Empire of The Vahkiran is a gargantuan, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.76 billion Vahkiran 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kal'Ruul'Tek. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.5%.

The all-consuming Vahkiran economy, worth a remarkable 1,627 trillion Vahkiran Royal Credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 110,278 Vahkiran Royal Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 407,321 per year while the poor average 21,054, a ratio of 19.3 to 1.

Former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, research into 'designer babies' is banned, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, and attempted suicide is punishable by public hanging. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Vahkiran's national animal is the Jahkii, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Shenru Prophecy.

The Vahkiran is ranked 146,248th in the world and 74th in The Local Cluster for Most Pacifist, with 5.65 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
