The Technocratic Space Kingdom of Destyntine is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Destyn IX with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.932 billion Destynians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyståska. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Destynic economy, worth a remarkable 1,041 trillion Digi-Krones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 264,919 Digi-Krones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, barbers who trim a few inches of hair bill the government for their labor, patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Destyntine" at foreigners, and billions of Digi-Krones are being blown on orbital weapons development. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Destyntine's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Modernized Norse Paganism.

Destyntine is ranked 58,962nd in the world and 400th in Europe for Most Income Equality, scoring 56.45 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
