The Cross Bones of Deadmans is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Duke of Deadmans with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 12.015 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.

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deatland City. The average income tax rate is 26%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

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, its national religion is Borism, and its currency is the Borish Pound.

Deadmans is ranked 7th in Paradise Storage and 77,999th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -15 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
