The Holy Crowned Republic of Damsmel is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 628 million Damsmelians 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Artica. The average income tax rate is 42.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Damsmelian economy, worth 79.4 trillion Damsmelian credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 126,397 Damsmelian credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

All new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Damsmel's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Damsmel is ranked 188,054th in the world and 8,283rd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.29 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
