The Democratic Republic of Deveth is a small, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working population of 23 million Penguins 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.1%.

The strong Devethian economy, worth 1.31 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is 57,142 marks, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Every workday begins with group therapy, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, builders across Deveth are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and the government says only criminals harp on about "innocent until proven guilty". Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Deveth's national animal is the Never Extinct Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Deveth is ranked 73,528th in the world and 68th in The Free Nations Region for Most Developed, scoring 54.41 on the Human Development Index.
