The Love of Death or Life is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Thomas Matthew Delonge with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.331 billion Death or Lifeans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Fe. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, Santa Fe is a police state during international summits, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Death or Life's national animal is the Soldier, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Anti-war, and its currency is the Life.

Death or Life is ranked 2nd in 00000 A World Power and 1,102nd in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 312.099 Insults Per Minute (net).
