Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federation of Des-Bal is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Vincent Aldremi with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.131 billion Des-Balians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

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 3,439 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 Uranium Mining, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 308,988 Khuuls, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,650,169 per year while the poor average 6,149, a ratio of 431 to 1.

All streets are privately owned toll roads, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and the government is outsourcing itself. Crime is almost non-existent. Des-Bal's national animal is the Scorpion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Capitalism.

Des-Bal is ranked 7th in House of Five Leaves and 124,165th in the world for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -228 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
