The Imperial Aristocracy of Great-Desolates is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 750 million Desolates 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 Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loli'ys. The average income tax rate is 36.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Desolate economy, worth 94.3 trillion LOLs 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 125,772 LOLs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, crackheads chase drug-loaded drones in hopes of a lucky drop, and hit and run driving is no longer a crime - it's the national sport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Great-Desolates's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Great-Desolates is ranked 70,417th in the world and 381st in Europe for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 194,173 Standard Monetary Units.
