The Call for the Dead of Richard I is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Pharaoh with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 23.501 billion, 703 million of whom are zombies, Richard Iians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Richard I City. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Much of Richard I's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, the government has enacted freedom of information, shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Richard I, and students cut up leftover Platinum Dollars during Arts and Crafts. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Richard I's national animal is the Hell Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is logging into NationStates every so often, and its currency is the Platinum Dollar.

Richard I is ranked 17th in Texas and 3,505th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 15 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Richard I is currently researching a cure.
