The Republic of Desert Camel is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 15.795 billion Desert Camelians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Desert Camelian economy, worth 80.1 trillion 090624006s a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 5,069 090624006s, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Desert Camel successfully hosted the desert Olympics, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, military barracks resemble five-star hotels, and legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Desert Camel's national animal is the dromedary camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Desert Camel is ranked 205,750th in the world and 18th in desert for Most Pro-Market, scoring -100 on the Rand Index.
