The Technocratic Space Empire of Vyrnum is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Ivyn Osmir with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.163 billion Imperials are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mida. The average income tax rate is 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Imperial economy, worth 48.2 trillion Uerovs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 41,472 Uerovs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, and serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyrnum's national animal is the Vilaskyn Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vyrnum is ranked 195,289th in the world and 88th in The Alliance of Dictators for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.67 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
