The Holy Land of Desert is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.217 billion Desertians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.3%.

The powerhouse Desertian economy, worth 657 trillion coins a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,042 coins, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, if you go into the woods today you're sure of a big surprise, builders across Desert are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and politicians are battling inequality by declaring themselves better than everyone else. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Desert's national animal is the tiger.

Desert is ranked 111,664th in the world and 3,971st in Balder for Most Beautiful Environments, with 542.51 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
