The Empire of Desboroughshire is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Thoughtful with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 3.286 billion Desboroughshireans 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, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Desborough. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Desboroughshirean economy, worth 489 trillion Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,969 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and the law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Desboroughshire's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christanity.
