The Serene Commonwealth of Deontologia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Sir Henry C Buford with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.558 billion Deontologians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kategoria. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Deontologian economy, worth a remarkable 1,285 trillion Deontolls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 195,990 Deontolls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, and Prime Minister Sir Henry C Buford's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deontologia's national animal is the Condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Freedom of Faith.

Deontologia is ranked 233,097th in the world and 471st in Forest for Most Armed, with 0.09 Weapons Per Person.
