The Latin Republic of El Dejarbo is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Roberta Ruiz with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 19.508 billion El Dejarboans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Religion & Spirituality, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Renu Grande. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing industries.

Airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. El Dejarbo's national animal is the chupacabra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Genesisian Catholicism, and its currency is the peso.

El Dejarbo is ranked 16th in American Continent and 114,119th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -468 Dawkins.
