The Militaristic Dictatorship of DeLongtasia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Cameron DeLong with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avant-garde cinema, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.063 billion Imperial DeLongtasians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Cash. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient DeLongtasian economy, worth 890 trillion federal units 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 175,863 federal units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is often said that only Cameron DeLong could bring down Dàguó, millions of Imperial DeLongtasians are excellent swimmers, dessert dishes make up the DeLongtasian breakfast menu, and priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DeLongtasia's national animal is the White Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

DeLongtasia is ranked 151,527th in the world and 371st in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 20.15 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
