The Havent you people ever heard of The Grim Reaper is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Grim Reaper with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.067 billion Reapers 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 prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Social Policy, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Necropolis. The average income tax rate is 48.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming undead economy, worth a remarkable 1,954 trillion souls 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 a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Retail. 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 102,496 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government adverts say that twelve lashes a day keeps divine wrath at bay, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', and military officials are questioning the policy of ceding the nation's territory in exchange for promises not to invade it. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Grim Reaper's national animal is the zombie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Grim Reaper is ranked 5,738th in the world and 270th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 13,744.02 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
