The The Pheonix Empire of Vedan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Krashgar Guana with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.366 billion Vedanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kraglorn. The average income tax rate is 68.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vedanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,770 trillion Edensias 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. 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 155,781 Edensias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, the military's primary weapons are fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, and a fanatical devotion to Lucernism, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Vedan's national animal is the Rockbiter, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lucernism.

Vedan is ranked 31,447th in the world and 3rd in The Mystical Alliance for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.97 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
