The Cremation Grounds of Totenborg is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Baron Samedi with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 979 million Undead love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tombstone. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Undead economy, worth 104 trillion Bones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 107,159 Bones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Getting milk from the local corner store no longer requires donning advanced hiking gear, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Totenborg's national animal is the King Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Totenborg is ranked 61,697th in the world and 2,132nd in Lazarus for Most Armed, with 0.39 Weapons Per Person.
