The Holy Empire of Vewri is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor David II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, strictly enforced bedtime, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.407 billion Vewrians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pendragon. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Vewrian economy, worth a remarkable 5,033 trillion Golds 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 Information Technology and Tourism. 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 259,387 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The well-to-do in Lazarus are never on time for important appointments, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vewri's national animal is the Frost Leviathan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vewrianism.

Vewri is ranked 206,585th in the world and 6,895th in Lazarus for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.51 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
