The Love of Death or Life is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Thomas Matthew Delonge with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, disturbing lack of elderly people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.767 billion Death or Lifeans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Fe. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Death or Lifean economy, worth a remarkable 5,274 trillion Lives a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 357,158 Lives, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,654,875 per year while the poor average 14,215, a ratio of 186 to 1.
The adult unemployment rate nears 100% as all available jobs have been filled by young children, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Death or Life with a very polite populace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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, and its national religion is Anti-war.
