The Parisian Catacomb Empire of Benevolent 00 is a colossal, pleasant nation, ruled by Monsieur Klaatu with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 8.224 billion les cadavres 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the darkest shadows of the City of Light. The average income tax rate is 16.4%.

The strong mort economy, worth 368 trillion bones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 44,838 bones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The only place where one can see the mort cherry tree is in a museum, religious education is a new government priority, factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, and organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem. Benevolent 00's national animal is the cadavre, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Ideology of Sacred-profane Dichotomy.

Benevolent 00 is ranked 46,875th in the world and 1st in The Empire of the Dead for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
