The Spooky Scary State of Necroghastia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Wyrd Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.589 billion Ghouls hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Necropolis. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Necroghastian economy, worth 479 trillion obols a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 104,576 obols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Necroghastia's national animal is the slime, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Necroghastia is ranked 211,968th in the world and 6,874th in the South Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -284.4 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
