The Empire of Veehrus is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 252 million Veehrusians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 45.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Veehrusian economy, worth 9.20 trillion lagays 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. 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 36,513 lagays, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's endangered species are no longer endangered, prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Veehrus's national animal is the dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Veehrus is ranked 122,218th in the world and 3,787th in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 72 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
