The United Socialist States of Debordan is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Dearest with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 3.283 billion Debordanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Horkheimer. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Debordanian economy, worth 164 trillion Florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Information Technology. Average income is 50,159 Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, the Debordanian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, Debordanian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, and a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Debordan's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Atheist.

Debordan is ranked 82,627th in the world and 457th in The Communist Bloc for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.52 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
