The Red Intellectual Republic of DFTBA-Land is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief Intellectual John Green with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.504 billion Awesome People are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Franovia. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Awesome economy, worth a remarkable 1,225 trillion Fanonis a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,367 Fanonis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. DFTBA-Land's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

DFTBA-Land is ranked 157,718th in the world and 5th in International Debating Area for Most Extreme, scoring 11.16 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
