The Monolithic Holy Empire of Verdunam is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Divine Joeyus Caesar with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, strictly enforced bedtime, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.782 billion Verduniams 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 government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pelum. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Verduniam economy, worth a remarkable 1,651 trillion Gold Hetzrems 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 amazing 243,455 Gold Hetzrems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, female brains are believed to heat up dangerously when 'overclocked', soldiers go to war dressed in cassocks and robes, and the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Verdunam's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Imperial Cult.

Verdunam is ranked 21,313th in the world and 548th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 782.22138826688 Days.
