The Autocracy of Desibia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by David Rodrenez with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, free-roaming dinosaurs, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.42 billion Desibians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vialusa. The average income tax rate is 69.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Desibian economy, worth 262 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,627 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, surveillance cameras are banned, sleeping on the job is recommended, and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Desibia's national animal is the coyote, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholic Christianity.

Desibia is ranked 53,517th in the world and 171st in Europe for Most Armed, with 1.24 weapons per person.
