The Desert of Death Valleyz is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 28.901 billion Death Valleyzians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 57.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Death Valleyzian economy, worth a remarkable 3,211 trillion 090628015s 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. 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 111,121 090628015s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Money can't buy love but mercy is entirely negotiable, high school bands practice by moonlight, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, and posh restaurants scatter glass fragments on the dining room floor to keep out barefoot undesirables. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Death Valleyz's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Death Valleyz is ranked 79,633rd in the world and 7th in desert for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,724.53 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
