The Empire of Devonia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alexander Wilhelm with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.13 billion Devonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dasler. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Devonian economy, worth 537 trillion Devonian Aiers a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 171,589 Devonian Aiers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 586,677 per year while the poor average 36,897, a ratio of 15.9 to 1.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Devonia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Devonia is ranked 77,833rd in the world and 52nd in Greater Dienstad for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
