The Syro of Dess hartovillan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Rubber Johnny with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, soft-spoken computers, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The democratic population of 1.26 billion Syro have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Collapse. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse windowlicking economy, worth 117 trillion beats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Soda Sales, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 93,401 beats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Unemployed mercenaries drift the country looking for new careers, the government has enacted freedom of information, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, and metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach. Crime is totally unknown. Dess hartovillan's national animal is the polyrhythm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dess hartovillan is ranked 32,213th in the world and 12th in The Federation of Anarchist Communes for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 95.74 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
