The Free Land of DesAnges is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Rhodri Guess with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.277 billion Angeleons 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, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citadelle DesAnges. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming DesAngexi economy, worth a remarkable 1,871 trillion Angelicoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,005 Angelicoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The DBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, and the nationalized auto industry is adept at making durable little cars nobody wants to drive. Crime is totally unknown. DesAnges's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

DesAnges is ranked 206,027th in the world and 1st in Arsed for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -10.68 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
