The Republic of Disagreer is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, frequent executions, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 652 million Disagreerians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Objectionville. The average income tax rate is 38.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Disagreerian economy, worth 62.3 trillion Negatives a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 95,535 Negatives, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities, the Objectionville Women's Prison Choir now has a baritone section, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Disagreer's national animal is the Nono, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Disagreer is ranked 32,832nd in the world and 2nd in Saint Christophers Landing for Highest Poor Incomes, with 53,127.85 Standard Monetary Units.
