The Dictatorship of Dejarkistan is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 673 million Demons 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Dejarkistanian economy, worth 88.0 trillion Gold shekels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 130,802 Gold shekels, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 496,256 per year while the poor average 23,933, a ratio of 20.7 to 1.

The government-run newspapers insist that everything is fine, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, and politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental. Crime is moderate. Dejarkistan's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Dejarkistan is ranked 16,112th in the world and 45th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 112.47 on the Hayek Index.
