The Awesomness of Dephinland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Awesome with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.016 billion Dephinlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Awesomeness City. The average income tax rate is 93.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Dephinlandian economy, worth 216 trillion marks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 107,370 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, many believe that Awesome rules by divine right, and glassy-eyed Dephinlandian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 9,085th in the world and 514th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 184.95 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
