The Barefoot Queen's Nation of Denerimus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Barefoot Empress Yang Xiao Long with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.788 billion Denerimusians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yang's Pink Toed Barefeet City. The average income tax rate is 58.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Denerimusian economy, worth 312 trillion Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,081 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, commemoration of the Great Confederation of Corrupt Dictators War costs almost as much as the war itself, and the request to "give us our daily bread" can only be fulfilled six days out of seven. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Denerimus's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yang Feetism.

Denerimus is ranked 9,832nd in the world and 147th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 25,276.11 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
