The Awesomness of Dephinland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Awesome with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 1.133 billion Dephinlandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dephinlandian economy, worth 105 trillion marks 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 93,149 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, laws are littered with references to cheese, and glamping Dephinlandians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dephinland's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dancing.

Dephinland is ranked 42,219th in the world and 1,987th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 111.36 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
