The Sacred Warlock of Vez Nan is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and ritual sacrifices. The cynical, devout population of 823 million Subjects 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 large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Dark Tower. The average income tax rate is 50.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Subject economy, worth 35.3 trillion Gold Coins a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,860 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schoolchildren must pass a six-month Ethics and Safety Committee Assessment before they are allowed to mix baking soda and vinegar, the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, Subjects are fixin' ta comma any way they wanna, and the Subject Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vez Nan's national animal is the Demon Hound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vez Nan is ranked 113,029th in the world and 25th in The Militia for Most Beautiful Environments, with 553.97 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
