The Tough love we came to expect of De hork is a massive, devout nation, ruled by a Ikharul a Dede-dede with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of public education. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.796 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 Commerce. 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.

Tumbleweeds made of litter adorn city streets, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance. 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 3rd in The Axis of Evil and 317th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 171 Whatever.
