The Dead Zombies of Covenancy is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and notable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, cynical population of 21.941 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Social Welfare, although Commerce and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 76%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Retail.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Covenancy's national animal is the buffalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is knowing that religion is the biggest lie, and its currency is the dollar.

Covenancy is ranked 191st in Ancient Lands and 94,927th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -1 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
