The Empire of Devinsburg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Supreme Overlord with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.139 billion Devinsburgians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dinkleburg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Devinsburgian economy, worth a remarkable 6,179 trillion grams 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip 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 a breathtaking 609,455 grams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Colonial subjects have Devinsburgian culture shoved down their throats, citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, and space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Devinsburg. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Devinsburg's national animal is the Sabre-Tooth Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Church of The Holy Supreme Overlord.

Devinsburg is ranked 15,498th in the world and 906th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 87.13 on the Human Development Index.
