The Federal Republic of Deadhorses is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chet Norman with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.197 billion Deadhorsesians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skirsburg. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Deadhorsesian economy, worth 130 trillion Federal Golds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,241 Federal Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The horniness of the great-horned Dead Horse is considered a national priority, women have a strange proclivity for dressing up as caped weasels, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, and coconut-half banging former royals skip around the countryside seeking gullible peasants to rule. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deadhorses's national animal is the Dead Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christanity.

Deadhorses is ranked 92,621st in the world and 46th in Conifer for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
