The Cross Bones of Deadmans is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Duke of Deadmans with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, avowedly heterosexual populace, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 15.168 billion Deadmansians 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deathland. The average income tax rate is 72.7%.
The strong Deadmansian economy, worth 337 trillion Borish Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Gambling industry. Average income is 22,256 Borish Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.
Punitive tariffs protect local industry, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, eminent domain has been abolished, and religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deadmans's national animal is the zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Borism.
