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, compulsory vegetarianism, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 31.272 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 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Despoticanian economy, worth an astonishing 33,626 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 1,075,293 Despollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

For the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, Despoticania is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them. 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 46th in the world and 2nd in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 152,194.42 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
