Location: The North Pacific
The Dictatorship of Desbrown is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, cynical population of 206 million Desbrownians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 50.2%.
The powerhouse Desbrownian economy, worth 15.9 trillion Cammarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 77,420 Cammarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.
Bike rage is all the rage, the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, and one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Desbrown's national animal is the Lion.
