The Empire of Desboroughshire is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Thoughtful with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, devout population of 3.762 billion Desboroughshireans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Desborough. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Desboroughshirean economy, worth 573 trillion Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,537 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declared that sharing is uncaring, classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Desboroughshire's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christanity.

Desboroughshire is ranked 33,709th in the world and 1,482nd in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 169.18 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
