OverviewFactbookPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federation of Des-Bal is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Vincent Aldremi with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.846 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Des-Hagir. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, Des-Hagir is a police state during international summits, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Des-Bal's national animal is the Scorpion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Capitalism, and its currency is the Khuul.

Des-Bal is ranked 16th in House of Five Leaves and 97,441st in the world for Most Average, scoring 380 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
