The Dead Meme of Dekks is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Garfield with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, flagrant waste-dumping, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.04 billion Odie Haters 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, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hell. The average income tax rate is 88.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Dekksian economy, worth a remarkable 4,997 trillion Lasagnas 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, 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 amazing 452,647 Lasagnas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The military is plagued with unethical researchers, ladies are meant to gush with enthusiasm if they get a new vacuum cleaner for their birthday, three-year-olds have tantrums because they don't want to be drainage technicians when they grow up, and it turns out that the government can have your guns by prying them out of your warm living hands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Dekks's national animal is the Jon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Existential Crisis.

Dekks is ranked 87,935th in the world and 97th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 3,625.57 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
