The Tough love we came to expect of De hork is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by a Ikharul a Dede-dede with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.83 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of a Aboderh Ikhak. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.

Vile black smog from coal power plants has enveloped several major urban centres, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, and a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. De hork's national animal is the Bo'i Borulukh, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a Khe'e Boturukh, and its currency is the Derhkhe.

De hork is ranked 4th in The Axis of Evil and 330th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 22 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
