The Empire of Veremur is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Damien Koschei with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.045 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sang City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Veremurian economy, worth a remarkable 8,768 trillion Koscheis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 350,124 Koscheis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,439,959 per year while the poor average 56,128, a ratio of 25.7 to 1.

Drunk drivers are sentenced to death, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, and a petition to improve Veremurian literacy is mostly signed with cross-marks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 163,663rd in the world and 2nd in Sol III for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -14.2 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
