The Bloody Red Lands of Idiots Place is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lord of Slaughter with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, infamous sell-swords, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.865 billion Dummies 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blood-Stained Cellar. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Stupid economy, worth 750 trillion Blood Droplets 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, 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 154,328 Blood Droplets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's no such thing as a safe bet, the public transport system has been eliminated, Lord of Slaughter has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space, and failure to pay the thrice-daily homage to the divine Lord of Slaughter is punishable by death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Idiots Place's national animal is the Zombie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Stupidity.

Idiots Place is ranked 187,135th in the world and 7th in The Diplomatic Committee Of Nations for Most Pro-Market, scoring -81.44 on the Rand Index.
