Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Undead Empire of Hatred and Darkness is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Nekros with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, strictly enforced bedtime, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 29.522 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 1.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hatred and Darknessian economy, worth a remarkable 8,407 trillion Imperial Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 284,803 Imperial Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise, it's rare to find an unchewed pencil, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble. 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 166,567th in the world and 11th in Dragon for Highest Drug Use, scoring 16.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
