The Parisian Catacomb Empire of Benevolent 00 is a gargantuan, pleasant nation, ruled by Monsieur Klaatu with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 10.472 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, 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 17.6%.

The strong mort economy, worth 488 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 46,613 bones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, atheists on vacation find the Ideology of Sacred-profane Dichotomy's scriptures make useful doorstops, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. 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 164,359th in the world and 2nd in The Empire of the Dead for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.97 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
