The Jingoistic States of Autopsies is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 855 million Well And Truly Dead Citizens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Great Crematorium. The average income tax rate is 76.5%.

The powerhouse Autopsiesian economy, worth 108 trillion Fingernails 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 126,877 Fingernails, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears, citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Autopsies's national animal is the Fifth Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Autopsies is ranked 215,601st in the world and 30th in Tsardom of Muscovy for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -11.75 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
