The Eternal Empire of The Vahkiran is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, enslaved workforce, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.417 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, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kal'Ruul'Tek. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.7%.

The all-consuming Vahkiran economy, worth a remarkable 1,928 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 110,697 Vahkiran Royal Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 642,433 per year while the poor average 9,045, a ratio of 71.0 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 31,365th in the world and 18th in The Local Cluster for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 5,428.04 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
