The The Pheonix Empire of Vedan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Krashgar Guana with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.702 billion Vedanians 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 medium-sized, 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 Kraglorn. The average income tax rate is 67.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vedanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,212 trillion Edensias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 157,439 Edensias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Most Vedanians would sell their own grandmother, organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces, truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, and Vedanian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Vedan's national animal is the Rockbiter, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lucernism.

Vedan is ranked 29,621st in the world and 7th in The Mystical Council for Nudest, with 209 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
