The Dictatorship of Where the dead live is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kim Il Sung with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.972 billion Where the dead liveans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kim Il Sung City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Where the dead livean economy, worth a remarkable 4,426 trillion Yuan 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 a breathtaking 555,199 Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, arbitration is mightier than the sword, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, and the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Where the dead live's national animal is the Dingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Juche.

Where the dead live is ranked 220,565th in the world and 7,851st in Lazarus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1471.71 on the Hayek Index.
