The Undead Hordes of La Danse Macabre is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.2 billion La Danse Macabreans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Healthcare, and International Aid also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant La Danse Macabrean economy, worth 149 trillion brains a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Cheese Exports, Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 16,271 brains, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. La Danse Macabre's national animal is the braaaaiins, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

La Danse Macabre is ranked 16,866th in the world and 1st in Kernkraft for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 75.95 Effective Tax Rate.
