The Grand Duchy of Living and Dead is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Papa Dave with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The compassionate, devout population of 875 million Living and Deadians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saigon be Gon. The average income tax rate is 56.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Living and Deadian economy, worth 74.4 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is 85,021 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Gambling is outlawed, theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, and most ambassadors from Living and Dead retire only a few years after being appointed. 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 27,877th in the world and 1st in Thee Confederacy of Randomnesses for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 183.34 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
