The HHHUUUUUUUUUGGGEEE Graveyard of When U Die is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its fear of technology, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 529 million When U Dieans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City Where People Kill You With Guns. The average income tax rate is 26.0%.

The sizeable but inefficient When U Diean economy, worth 26.4 trillion bloody coins 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Tourism, and Gambling. 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 49,963 bloody coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Loch Ness Monster hunting institutions, priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, and it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. When U Die's national animal is the Loch Ness Monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

When U Die is ranked 135,529th in the world and 348th in Chicken overlords for Longest Average Lifespans, with 67.95 Years.
