The Holy Empire of The land of certain death is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 779 million land of certain deathians 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, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital City Of New Destruction. The average income tax rate is 60.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient land of certain deathian economy, worth 37.6 trillion ketchups a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,268 ketchups, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', owning a tractor is widely regarded as an essential prerequisite to most government positions, drug-related crimes carry the death penalty, and the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The land of certain death's national animal is the rabid rabbits, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The land of certain death is ranked 63,160th in the world and 149th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Extreme, scoring 24.74 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
