The Matriarchy of DeSanta Peradino is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Ojke Holdren with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, soft-spoken computers, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.382 billion DeSanta Peradinoans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Electra. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient DeSanta Peradinoan economy, worth 186 trillion fluffcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 135,082 fluffcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense, crooks and people with too many kids are being kicked out of the country, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DeSanta Peradino's national animal is the Squirrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violetism.

DeSanta Peradino is ranked 126,230th in the world and 44th in The United Empires of Carson for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 772.26 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
