The Confederation of Deftern is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.567 billion Defternians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankara. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Defternian economy, worth 330 trillion lira-Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 128,568 lira-Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Defternians, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deftern's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheist.

Deftern is ranked 210,331st in the world and 967th in Europe for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -9 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
