The Colony of Deflation 207 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.454 billion Deflation 207ians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.5%.

The all-consuming Deflation 207ian economy, worth 277 trillion banks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 113,037 banks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 411,733 per year while the poor average 22,057, a ratio of 18.7 to 1.

Airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, it's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it", tourists are forbidden to enter Native Deflation 207ian lands, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deflation 207's national animal is the card, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Deflation 207 is ranked 39,296th in the world and 67th in Willow Farm for Highest Drug Use, scoring 100.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
