The Commonwealth of Dester is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Basileus with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.941 billion Desteri hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avalon. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Desteri economy, worth 670 trillion talons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 112,889 talons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents. Crime is totally unknown. Dester's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dester is ranked 8,669th in the world and 13th in Caer Sidi for Smartest Citizens, with 99.05 quips per hour.
