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 remarkable for its public floggings, complete lack of public education, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 30.029 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 8,599 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 286,368 Imperial Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk. 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 11,451st in the world and 2nd in Dragon for Most Authoritarian, with 2.2 Stalins.
