Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Desmonwood is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 12.759 billion Desmonwoodians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Desmonwoodian economy, worth 308 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is 24,163 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School uniforms are compulsory, none has been named as Desmonwood's national religion, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Desmonwood's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Desmonwood is ranked 104,587th in the world and 796th in Ancient Lands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 324.49 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
