Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Des-Bal is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Vincent Aldremi with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.965 billion Des-Balians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Des-Hagir. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Des-Balian economy, worth a remarkable 4,751 trillion Khuuls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 317,478 Khuuls, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,768,626 per year while the poor average 5,641, a ratio of 490 to 1.

The national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, discarded pennies litter the streets, pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, and the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams. Crime is almost non-existent. Des-Bal's national animal is the Scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Capitalism.

Des-Bal is ranked 176,916th in the world and 3rd in House of Five Leaves for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 9.42 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
