Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Order of Voxum Mortalum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Grand Master with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.771 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkspace. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Voxum Mortalumian economy, worth a remarkable 4,090 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 206,896 mortalias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, tourists visit Voxum Mortalum to mass-moon Voxum Mortalumian politicians, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. 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 51,158th in the world and 455th in Europeia for Most Income Equality, scoring 48.52 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
