The Dictatorship of Union of Despotistan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Union of Despotistan Military Junta with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.494 billion Union of Despotistanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Despotia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.0%.

The all-consuming Union of Despotistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,354 trillion Piastres a year, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 108,446 Piastres, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 337,969 per year while the poor average 26,736, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

The nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home, and squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Union of Despotistan's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is inexistent as religion is dangerous.

Union of Despotistan is ranked 131,055th in the world and 5,341st in the Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 7.91 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
