The Despotic Dictatorship of Despoticania is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Despot with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, smutty television, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 30.632 billion Despoticanians 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 relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Despoticania Prime. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Despoticanian economy, worth an astonishing 32,465 trillion Despollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 1,059,853 Despollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, the new national anthem passes the Turing Test, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime is totally unknown. Despoticania's national animal is the Winged Unicorn Pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of Transcendental Hatred.

Despoticania is ranked 31,728th in the world and 32nd in The Alliance of Dictators for Fattest Citizens, with 13.92 Obesity Rate.
