The Empire of Deolux is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 338 million Deoluxians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Deoluxian economy, worth 11.9 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 35,343 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, it is often said that only Leader could bring down Dàguó, all footpaths have tollbooths, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deolux's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Deolux is ranked 199,677th in the world and 1,143rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -1.71 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
