The Deadly Nation of New Deathland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Grim Reaper with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.991 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Meathland. The average income tax rate is 77.8%.

The frighteningly efficient New Deathlandian economy, worth 269 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, Tourism, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. 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 135,457 Lives, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Holidays are regarded as the most miserable time of the year, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, most pop videos prominently feature the New Deathlandian flag, and lobster tastes best when it is red. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 6,658th in the world and 2nd in The Region Of Gargery for Largest Black Market, with 241 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
