The Let's Make A Deal of Degenerate the Faithful is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, state-planned economy, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 22.771 billion Degenerate the Faithfulians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, although Education, Industry, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paris. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.4%.

The thriving Degenerate the Faithfulian economy, worth a remarkable 1,675 trillion $$$s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 73,570 $$$s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 224,744 per year while the poor average 18,667, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

No-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, the public transport system has been eliminated, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, and teenage girls in knee-length surfer shorts have become a cultural icon of Degenerate the Faithful. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Degenerate the Faithful's national animal is the ^-^, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Aubrey-Maturinism.

Degenerate the Faithful is ranked 44,168th in the world and 1st in Paris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,239.13 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
