The Death-Ridden Lands of Idiots Place is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lord of Slaughter with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.933 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of KillVille. The average income tax rate is 45.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Stupid economy, worth 191 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized 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 65,123 Blood Droplets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The legal system for the political class is completely separate from the one for normal citizens, sneezing in public is a capital offense, to 'cut off family ties' is no longer just a phrase, and hammer and sickle-wielding space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on. 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 147,538th in the world and 7th in The Diplomatic Committee Of Nations for Longest Average Lifespans, with 28.89 Years.
