The Grand Duchy of Living and Dead is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 443 million Living and Deadians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 36.5%.

The Living and Deadian economy, worth 30.0 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 67,785 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

A primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, and renewable energy projects have ground to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Living and Dead's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Living and Dead is ranked 2,393rd in the world and 1st in Thee Confederacy of Randomnesses for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 10,268.45 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
