The Order of Voxum Mortalum is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Grand Master with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.872 billion Mortalumians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkspace. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Voxum Mortalumian economy, worth a remarkable 6,266 trillion mortalias a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 217,046 mortalias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage, party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises, the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, and agreeing to appear on TV is often the best way to access social care. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Voxum Mortalum's national animal is the Undead Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is immortalism.

Voxum Mortalum is ranked 224,931st in the world and 742nd in Europeia for Most Primitive, scoring -476.49 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
