The Love of Death or Life is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Thomas Matthew Delonge with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.579 billion Death or Lifeans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Fe. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Death or Lifean economy, worth a remarkable 8,147 trillion Lives a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 395,915 Lives, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,153,392 per year while the poor average 37,424, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Death or Lifeans are free from pain - but the side effects include loss of individual thought and freedom, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, and freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Death or Life's national animal is the Soldier, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Anti-war.

Death or Life is ranked 7,257th in the world and 3rd in 00000 A World Power for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 57.54 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
