The Undead Empire of Hatred and Darkness is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Nekros with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 31.113 billion Deadites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helsgate. The average income tax rate is 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hatred and Darknessian economy, worth a remarkable 9,002 trillion Imperial Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 289,352 Imperial Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Fighter pilots crash out of the air after failing to understand their foreign instruction manuals, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, and the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita. 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. Hatred and Darkness's national animal is the Blind Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Lichdom.

Hatred and Darkness is ranked 139th in the world and 1st in Dragon for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 37,646.94 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
