The Undead Zombie Empire of Falapatorius is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Murphy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, frequent executions, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 14.998 billion rotting zombies live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gravesland. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 4,683 trillion emptied skulls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 312,298 emptied skulls, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,920,290 per year while the poor average 22,166, a ratio of 86.6 to 1.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, Exposed Brain is one of the most popular forenames in Falapatorius, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Falapatorius's national animal is the exposed brain, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Warrenism.

Falapatorius is ranked 439th in the world and 9th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 21,382.54 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
