The Empire of Veremur is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Damien Koschei with an iron fist, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.708 billion Veremurians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Spirituality and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sang City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Veremurian economy, worth an astonishing 14,231 trillion Koscheis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 463,430 Koscheis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,531,148 per year while the poor average 16,754, a ratio of 210 to 1.

Straight-edges are forced to collect rain water to avoid getting high off the water supply, the national anthem's only purpose is to inflate Damien Koschei's ever-expanding ego, euthanasia is illegal, and farmers' market days almost always end in a shooting. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Veremur's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Koscheism.

Veremur is ranked 27,029th in the world and 2nd in Sol III for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 114.93 on the Hayek Index.
