The Deadly Nation of New Deathland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Grim Reaper with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.418 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Meathland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.4%.

The frighteningly efficient New Deathlandian economy, worth 307 trillion Lives a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,007 Lives, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

Behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos, attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, and the nation's hospitals are criticized for caring more about profits than patients. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 73,181st in the world and 13th in The Region Of Gargery for Rudest Citizens, with 59.66 Insults Per Minute.
