The Despotic Dictatorship of Despoticania is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Despot with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 37.867 billion Despoticanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Despoticania Prime. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Despoticanian economy, worth an astonishing 46,405 trillion Despollars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. 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 a breathtaking 1,225,498 Despollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Despoticanians's kindness, the DBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, and court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Despoticania's national animal is the Winged Unicorn Pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Transcendental Hatred.

Despoticania is ranked 283,999th in the world and 57th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Devout, with 1.17 prayers per hour.
