The Skeletal Marketplace of Black Friday is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 15.197 billion, 3.445 billion of whom are zombies, Black Fridayians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bone City. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Information Technology and Gambling.

Cities are engulfed by smog, meat-eating is frowned upon, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Black Friday's national animal is the black mamba, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the fridenaro.

Black Friday is ranked 22nd in The Skeleton Army and 109,992nd in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -13 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Black Friday is currently researching a cure.
