The Federation of Devalesten is a massive, safe nation, ruled by James Springfield with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, sprawling nuclear power plants, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, humorless population of 3.503 billion Devalestenians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Druefelt. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Devalestenian economy, worth 507 trillion Zerkes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 144,916 Zerkes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, and the tightness of border controls in Devalesten leave a little to be desired. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Devalesten's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Devalesten is ranked 225,634th in the world and 9,494th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 6,666.15 Standard Monetary Units.
