The Holy Red Lucky Zombie Nation of Vort is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Control Brain Nicholas 72 with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.108 billion Vortians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Couchtopia. The average income tax rate is 45.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vortian economy, worth 455 trillion Gold Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,625 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace, homophobia is off the menu, the nation has been sent to bed early for unspecified naughtiness, and the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vort's national animal is the Vorta Lynx monster, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Science.

Vort is ranked 38,910th in the world and 1st in Outhouse of Madness for Most Devout, with 692.64 Prayers Per Hour.
