The Dominion of Disphasia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 266 million Disphasians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Disphasian economy, worth 5.12 trillion sticks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 19,235 sticks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-vaxxers are right about the government injecting diseases into people, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, the only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag, and the secret service is working overtime to find anyone publishing unauthorized material about Leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Disphasia's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Disphasia is ranked 214,079th in the world and 8,482nd in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -11.45 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
