The Protectorate of The ColdWyvernian Undead is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leth Beň with a fair hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 9.884 billion ColdWyvernians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marbhaven. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient ColdWyvernian Undeadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,233 trillion Scythes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,839 Scythes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em", and the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The ColdWyvernian Undead's national animal is the Morlock Crow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is A Religion.

The ColdWyvernian Undead is ranked 243,971st in the world and 11,874th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -46.65 on the Hayek Index.
