The Dictatorship of Depressed Nation is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 208 million Depressed Nationians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 55.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Depressed Nationian economy, worth 9.73 trillion Bits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,785 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Black tea is only available on the black market, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, and all beauty contests have been banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Depressed Nation's national animal is the Money, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Depressed Nation is ranked 33,944th in the world and 1,069th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,631.31 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
