The Holy Lucky Incorporation of Republic of Desmondia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Santa with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.669 billion Desmondians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varr. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Desmondian economy, worth 160 trillion gold bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 96,017 gold bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state. Crime is totally unknown. Republic of Desmondia's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reformism.

Republic of Desmondia is ranked 113,140th in the world and 73rd in The Social Liberal Union for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 986.55 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
