The Undead Zombie Empire of Falapatorius is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Murphy with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 15.232 billion rotting zombies live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gravesland. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient undead economy, worth a remarkable 4,764 trillion emptied skulls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 312,792 emptied skulls, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,912,779 per year while the poor average 22,512, a ratio of 85.0 to 1.

Citizens drive tank-like vehicles with mounted machine guns, in a fit of passion The Murphy has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Falapatorius's national animal is the exposed brain, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Warrenism.

Falapatorius is ranked 206,894th in the world and 10,059th in The North Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 17.54 milliStalins.
