The Evil Raider of Visorax is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Visoraxus Holoratus Starkiller with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.276 billion citizens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Visograd. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Visorax economy, worth 668 trillion dollars 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. 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 impressive 126,676 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", and all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Visorax's national animal is the robot, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Visorax is ranked 226,758th in the world and 3rd in The Shadows for Best Weather, with 63 Meters Of Sunlight.
