The Volksstaat of Deneb is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Alexander Schmorell with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.625 billion Denebiens 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schwanzstucker. The average income tax rate is 49.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Denebian economy, worth 117 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is 44,737 Reichsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids feel more beat up than ever after a hard day at school, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deneb's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Wotanism.

Deneb is ranked 71,677th in the world and 97th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Influential, scoring 146 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
