The Zombie Enclave of Blight-Bane is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Insatiable with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.683 billion peckish zombies live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Defense and Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Morgue. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 1,645 trillion pickled brains a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 169,911 pickled brains, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,121,011 per year while the poor average 9,974, a ratio of 112 to 1.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and Harvested Brain is one of the most popular forenames in Blight-Bane. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Blight-Bane's national animal is the harvested brain, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Contagious Zombism.

Blight-Bane is ranked 31,191st in the world and 6th in The Zombie Factory for Largest Black Market, with 7.31 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
