|Capital||The 10th District|
|Leader||The Rt Hon Rand Chastain ESS EED|
The Nuts and Bolts of Decacon is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Rt Hon Rand Chastain ESS EED with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, ritual sacrifices, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.759 billion Ten-Fingers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The 10th District. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Ten-Fingered economy, worth 363 trillion Decis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,058 Decis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Acrimonious legal battles result during divorce proceedings, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, and citizens re-mortgage their homes to buy lottery tickets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Decacon's national animal is the Ten-Fingered Alligator, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
