Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Republic of Deathfall is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Johnathan Atwood with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed population of 2.212 billion Deathfallians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nairo. The average income tax rate is 62.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Deathfallian economy, worth 358 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 162,056 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', Johnathan Atwood makes and breaks shaky peace deals in 140 characters or less, and the DBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. Crime is totally unknown. Deathfall's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Deathfall is ranked 7,372nd in the world and 20th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
