The Holy Jebist-Posadist Order of Dekks is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nuclear Jeb with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 2.25 billion Dekksians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jebia. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dekksian economy, worth 362 trillion Posadas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 160,927 Posadas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Air Dekks is rumored to receive more government funding than the Dekksian Air Force, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, the latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone, and the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Dekks's national animal is the Dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Jebism-Posadism.

Dekks is ranked 10,288th in the world and 34th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
