The People's Republic of Desvios is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.348 billion Desviosians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Desvios City. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Desviosian economy, worth a remarkable 2,221 trillion decapitated heads a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 237,666 decapitated heads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, women have a strange proclivity for dressing up as caped weasels, children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out, and spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches. Crime is totally unknown. Desvios's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Desvios is ranked 1,278th in the world and 83rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 98.16 on the Human Development Index.
