OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Latin Republic of El Dejarbo is a gargantuan, devout 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 20.013 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.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, people have to sneak out of the country in order to have sex, people can often be seen driving to work in war-surplus tanks, and small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants. 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 7th in American Continent and 110,271st in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -144 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
