The Definitely Deceased Carcass of The Dead Parrot is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.109 billion Dead Parrots are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Notlob. The average income tax rate is 45.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Dead Parrotian economy, worth 991 trillion feathers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 89,226 feathers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour, fish with fish chips have become the new Dead Parrotian food staple, and all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves. Crime is a major problem. The Dead Parrot's national animal is the Norwegian Blue, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Dead Parrot is ranked 39,487th in the world and 3rd in Monty Python for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
