The Secular State of Deimosan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Glaice with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 8.121 billion Deimosanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcturus. The average income tax rate is 4.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Deimosanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,104 trillion kannas a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 259,121 kannas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers, few that venture into government archives are ever seen again, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Deimosan, and the study of medicine is popular throughout Deimosan. Crime is totally unknown. Deimosan's national animal is the crocodile, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Deimosan is ranked 27,549th in the world and 68th in Forest for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,941.25 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
