The Sacred Imperial States of Denado is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Arzejus of Hälej-Seßülia with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.944 billion Denadens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ördfaldtin. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dinaden economy, worth a remarkable 2,571 trillion Dinesmärches a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 172,071 Dinesmärches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales', the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, a degree of self-hatred is vital for a future in politics, and motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Denado's national animal is the Luckstpfaratti, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Denado is ranked 46,648th in the world and 1,770th in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,886.15 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
