The Democratic Socialist States of Denly is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Glorious Comrade Vladimir Benin with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 3.416 billion Denlyians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Commerce, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sottin City. The average income tax rate is 97%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing.

The government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the government funds large training centres to turn Golden Eagles into functioning members of society, and traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Denly's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Atheism, and its currency is the Deen.

Denly is ranked 397th in United Kingdom and 112,571st in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -133 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
