The Free Land of Dasterotchavan is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Ronald McDonald with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 982 million Dasterotchavians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dasterotia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Dasterotchavanian economy, worth 110 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 112,198 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 436,398 per year while the poor average 19,723, a ratio of 22.1 to 1.

The latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone, the CEO of Laws Incorporated must sign off on all new bills, citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em", and pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Dasterotchavan's national animal is the Horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Dasterotchavan is ranked 22,930th in the world and 302nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,235.13 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
