The Deadly Nation of New Deathland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Grim Reaper with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.82 billion New Deathlandians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Meathland. The average income tax rate is 74.9%.

The frighteningly efficient New Deathlandian economy, worth 228 trillion Lives 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Tourism, 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 an impressive 125,760 Lives, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, New Deathlandians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, the sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers, and clothed men and nude women illustrate the stark contrasts in the nation's equality laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Deathland's national animal is the Reaper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reaperisam.

New Deathland is ranked 227,746th in the world and 18th in The Region Of Gargery for Most Pacifist, with 5.07 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
