OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Latin Republic of El Dejarbo is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Roberta Ruiz with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 19.863 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 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.

Voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 3rd in American Continent and 40,971st in the world for Nudest, with 166 Cheeks per Square Mile.
