The Militaristic Nation of Communist Zombie Horde is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Supreme Horde Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, unlimited-speed roads, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.44 billion Horde Soldiers 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Hordean economy, worth 372 trillion Severed Limbs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 152,839 Severed Limbs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 671,221 per year while the poor average 21,882, a ratio of 30.7 to 1.

Soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, the government spends billions to protect Communist Zombie Horde from a disaster that is one in a million, it is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, and the government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Communist Zombie Horde's national animal is the Human, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult of the Horde.

Communist Zombie Horde is ranked 5,442nd in the world and 323rd in Osiris for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 10,259.11 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
