The Promised Land of Desecraton is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, rampant corporate plagiarism, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.009 billion Desecratonians 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 large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antares. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Desecratonian economy, worth 331 trillion golden charms a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 165,011 golden charms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, the doctor has cold hands, armed security details escort librarians to their homes, and not many kids know Shakespeare's Hamlet but most of them have seen unofficial sequel Hamlet III - The Search For Osric. Crime is totally unknown. Desecraton's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Desecraton is ranked 167,433rd in the world and 56th in Right to Life for Largest Black Market, with 81.8 billion Standard Monetary Units.
