The Dominion of The Dezreik is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 320 million 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, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beornisgate. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Dezreikian economy, worth 20.8 trillion Bobs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,005 Bobs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, there are no more heroes any more, and fruit market traders let their stock spoil rather than reduce their prices at the day's end. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Dezreik is ranked 112,058th in the world and 133rd in International Democratic Union for Largest Populations, with 320 million Capita.
