The Land of the Dead wiki last edited by FoxMulder on 05/30/13 10:13PM View full history

The Land of the Dead is presented as a bridging place between life and death. After people die, they are brought to the Land of the Dead by travel agents (more commonly known in the Land of the Living as grim reapers) to arrange their journey through the Land of the Dead to get  to the Land of Eternal Rest.  It is stated that the travel times can take up to four years for people who do not qualify for travel packages, and only four minutes for those who quality for the Number Nine Express Train.
It is explicitly stated that Manny works at the Department of Death as he is paying off a debt for what he did wrong in his life (making it a purgatory for him), and it seems likely that this is also the case for the other people who seem to permanently inhabit the Land of the Dead, rather than just travelling through it.
