The Dominion of The Dezreik is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, feral children, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 692 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, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beornisgate. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Dezreikian economy, worth 58.8 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 quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 84,989 Bobs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, the restriction that you must be over 1.1 metres tall to ride a carnotaurus has recently been waived, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here". 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.

The Dezreik is ranked 144,606th in the world and 93rd in International Democratic Union for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 26.92 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
