The Undead Zombie Empire of Falapatorius is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Murphy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 16.787 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, although Defense is also considered important, 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 5,275 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 Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 314,241 emptied skulls, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,928,693 per year while the poor average 22,408, a ratio of 86.1 to 1.

Artists are pillars of society, graffiti graces every city's streets, city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. 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 53,280th in the world and 1st in The Zombie Factory for Most Developed, scoring 64.08 on the Human Development Index.
