OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Desmonwood is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol. Its cynical population of 7.443 billion are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Defence and the Environment are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 70%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing.

School uniforms are compulsory, Presbyterian 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. Desmonwood's national animal is the white tailed deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Presbyterian, and its currency is the dollar.

Desmonwood is ranked 1st in Ards and 111,810th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 24 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
