The Card Kingdom of Debussy is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Clancy with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, vat-grown people, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 3.987 billion Lazarenes enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Debussyian economy, worth 603 trillion Banks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,256 Banks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, lobbyists are trying to convince government to recategorize most natural disasters as "non-critical naturogenic inconveniences", people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', and a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Debussyian politicians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Debussy's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cards.

Debussy is ranked 7,890th in the world and 391st in Lazarus for Most Secular, with 96.6 Atheism Rate.
