The United Kingdom of Deagane is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.936 billion Deaganeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.9%.

The thriving Deaganean economy, worth 553 trillion Latinums 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 large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. 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 93,171 Latinums, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Deagane flights to avoid the pay lavatories, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, and builders across Deagane are blocked up with orders for new public loos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deagane's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Deagane is ranked 246,047th in the world and 6,350th in Lazarus for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -17 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
