The Barefoot Queen's Nation of Denerimus is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Barefoot Empress Yang Xiao Long with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.209 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 62.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Denerimusian economy, worth 362 trillion Pounds a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,111 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Jennifer Government is banned, military spending is on the increase, soldiers are authorised to use lethal force to maintain calm in the crash zone, and ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products. 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 156,855th in the world and 481st in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 50.87 Workforce Participation Rate.
