The People's Republic of Dekatu is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 382 million Dekatuans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dekatuan economy, worth 41.2 trillion Glovas 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. 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 an impressive 107,889 Glovas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, hockey players who drop their gloves discard them on abandoned baseball mitts, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dekatu's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dekatu is ranked 27,902nd in the world and 403rd in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 75.51 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
