The Holy Theodemocracy of LDS Church is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Russell Marion Nelson with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and triple-decker prams. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 7.842 billion Deseretians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salt Lake City. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Deseretian economy, worth 947 trillion Deseret Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,816 Deseret Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, and people often feel unbalanced by their daily commute. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. LDS Church's national animal is the Zombie Honey Bee, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of Jesus Christ of LDS.

LDS Church is ranked 89,630th in the world and 78th in The League of Conservative Nations for Most Influential, scoring 159 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
