The Deadly Nation of New Deathland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Grim Reaper with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, fear of technology, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.451 billion New Deathlandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Meathland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.2%.

The all-consuming New Deathlandian economy, worth 161 trillion Lives 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. 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 110,984 Lives, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial, state officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute The Grim Reaper's portrait, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, and it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Deathland's national animal is the Reaper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reaperisam.

New Deathland is ranked 16,030th in the world and 2nd in The Region Of Gargery for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 16,163.63 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
