The Depressive Empire's Union of Great-Desolates is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Evillyn with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.223 billion Desolates have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tristitia. The average income tax rate is 47.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Desolate economy, worth 168 trillion LoLs 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 137,371 LoLs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, news headlines suggest that Empress Evillyn has a sideline in guinea pig pimping, the once prosperous capital is in utter decline, and the general public only knows their favorite politician's first name. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Great-Desolates's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Sanctus Tristitiae.

Great-Desolates is ranked 21,298th in the world and 322nd in Europe for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,562.73 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
