The predominant religion in Vedmed is Episemialist Sotirianity followed by roughly 70% of the nation.
The Vedmedi would migrate to the Vedmed and many surrounding regions as a part of the larger Tagamic migrations taking place during the 9th Century. Prior to the arrival of the Vedmedi and other migratory groups into the region it was occupied by an unknown group of Marolevs that seem to have either been assimilated into or wiped out by the Vedmedi due to their conquest of the region and their aggressive policies undertaken by the Vedmed to the people's of the area. A number of small Vedmedi Kingdoms would emerge folllowing their migration controlling most of what is modern day Vedmed and extending to many surrounding modern day nations. The Vedmedi Unification Wars taking place during the 10th and 11th century would see the formation of the Kingdom of Vedmed which would go onto become a dominating force from the 13th century till its eventual conquest by Soravia during The Vedmedi-Soravian War
Vedmed would continue to be a state under Soravia till the Sostava War when the collapse and partial disentigration of Sorvaia allowed Vedmed and surrounding states to gain their independence. The immediate aftermath left Vedmed divided in-between a variety of armed militias and former Soravian Army units which would loosely unify under the United for Vedmed Front pushing out a variety of collectivist forces during the brief Vedmedi Civil War. Following the conclusion of the civil war Vedmed operated under a dominant party system led by the Vedmed United Party which due to its Soraviaphillic nature pursued close ties with the nation joining Samorspi and eventually joining the Tsivebi Military Agreement, this dominant party system was broken by the Social Democrat Party with the 2020 Vedmedi Election.
The Government of Vedmed is a Unitary constitutional parliamentary republic with a unicameral legislature and an independent judiciary. Vedmed is a member of the Community of Nations, Samorspi, ITO, and the GIFA. The Economy of Vedmed stands as one of the largest within the Samorspi alliance with the exception of Soravia, with a GDP of $328.7 Billion making it the Xth largest in the world and Xth largest in Samorspi.

Vedmed is not a Vedmedi word, it is a !Ukranian word used to describe the ferocity of fighting of these new nomadic fighters and their arrival into Central Euclea as well as to insult their apparent excess of hair and their stature being short and stout.
Modern human settlement in Vedmed has been dated as far back as 32,000 BC and is likely to be considered one of the first locations for the domestication of the horse by humans in Euclea. While settlement has been found during this time period, it is still believed that much of modern day Vedmed consisted of a variety of nomadic tribes.
By the beginning of the 5th Century BC there has been writings of the ‘Horse People’ that is believed to describe the nomadic tribes before their conquest by what is believed to be Proto-Marolevs.
