The Holy Protectorate of Devoted Decons is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Duke with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 29.977 billion Devoted Deconsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, with Education, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vincestria. The average income tax rate is 37.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Devoted Deconsian economy, worth 903 trillion talents a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,137 talents, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights, and students consistently complain that the wi-fi ate their homework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Devoted Decons's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Devoted Decons is ranked 164,810th in the world and 58th in Catholic for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -3.22 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
