The Dictatorship of Depressed Nation is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 649 million Depressed Nationians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Depressed Kids. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Depressed Nationian economy, worth 51.6 trillion Bits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,555 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, the urinary fragrance of seedier establishments is thankfully hidden by the smell of stale smoke, an extra hand on the leg will give a horse-and-a-half of lead in a hundred jiffies on seven furlongs, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Depressed Nation's national animal is the Money, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Depressed Nation is ranked 205,156th in the world and 7,162nd in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.55 Obesity Rate.
