Location: Pony Lands

Regional Influence: Squire


The Republic of Deffendall is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 5.249 billion Deffendians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 59.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Deffendian economy, worth 154 trillion dollars a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,459 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dining out often involves bears on the plate no matter what you order, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, Deffendall successfully hosted the Pony Lands Olympics, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deffendall's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Deffendall is ranked 108,804th in the world and 42nd in Pony Lands for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 767.1 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
