The Dominion of The Dezreik is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by 'Ursa Major' Calamity Haldane with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.226 billion Dezreikians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beornisgate. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Dezreikian economy, worth 134 trillion Bobs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 109,410 Bobs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, bike rage is all the rage, meat-eating is frowned upon, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dezreik's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Science.

The Dezreik is ranked 45,648th in the world and 35th in International Democratic Union for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,792.14 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
