The Strex Smiling-Sun Worshipers of Deseret Bluffs is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Traveler with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.447 billion Deseret Bluffsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Strexxon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.

The powerhouse Deseret Bluffsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,125 trillion defunctbucks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 83,694 defunctbucks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 244,504 per year while the poor average 22,623, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, in court almost every witness is a hostile witness, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and increasing numbers of children in Deseret Bluffs have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Deseret Bluffs's national animal is the radioactive four-armed deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Unholy Satanic Doctrines of Strexx Corp.

Deseret Bluffs is ranked 168,641st in the world and 1st in Night Vale for Fattest Citizens, with 9.77 Obesity Rate.
