The Kingdom of Debussy is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Clancy with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.716 billion Lazarenes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Executiva. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Debussyian economy, worth 354 trillion Banks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 130,564 Banks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Debussy's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cards.

Debussy is ranked 2,059th in the world and 18th in Lazarus for Most Influential, scoring 45,896 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
