The Emeraudian Republic of Deblar is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Benjamin Claude with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.823 billion Emeraudians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port-au-Grégoire. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Deblarian economy, worth 365 trillion Arucian shillings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,569 Arucian shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

President Benjamin Claude is strangely popular with male politicians' wives, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Arucian shilling mansions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deblar's national animal is the Long-tailed Parakeet, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Deblar is ranked 11,325th in the world and 9th in Kylaris for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,184.79 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
