The Armed Republic of The Death Syndicate is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 440 million Death Syndicate Members 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cemetery Hill. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Death Syndicatean economy, worth 43.9 trillion Gold bars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 99,877 Gold bars, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, civil servants spend most their time carrying out risk assessments for paper cuts, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and calisthenics is a well-known tax-dodging technique. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Death Syndicate's national animal is the Plague, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Death Syndicate is ranked 58,562nd in the world and 2,059th in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 74 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
