The Republic of Deskeuburg is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 640 million Deskeuburgians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moralatine. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Deskeuburgi economy, worth 42.9 trillion Lowelans a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,963 Lowelans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation sends criminals home to think about what they did, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, recognizing the Deskeuburgi flag qualifies you for citizenship, and citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deskeuburg's national animal is the mountain lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Deskeuburg is ranked 257,388th in the world and 18th in The Potato Union for Most Avoided, scoring 0.84 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
