The Kingdom of Debussy is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Clancy with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.335 billion Lazarenes enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Debussyian economy, worth 863 trillion Banks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,286 Banks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's believed that women's brains will overheat if they think for themselves, being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill, police are arresting costumed characters at comic book conventions, and Tetris has been banned for its graphic violent content. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Debussy's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cards.

Debussy is ranked 264,318th in the world and 7,107th in Lazarus for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.58 crimes per hour.
