The Order of Voxum Mortalum is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Grand Master with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.352 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 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Voxum Mortalumian economy, worth a remarkable 4,479 trillion mortalias a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 209,774 mortalias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, and invading armies are given hard glares for their cheek. 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 169,558th in the world and 1,101st in Europeia for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -56.6 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
