The Despotic Dictatorship of Despoticania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Despot with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 32.092 billion Despoticanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

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 income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Despoticanian economy, worth an astonishing 34,367 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 Basket Weaving. 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 1,070,899 Despollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Despot's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, most foreigners can't name the leader of Despoticania, the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. 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 26,999th in the world and 33rd in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Extreme, scoring 34.92 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
