The United Socialist States of Depro is a huge, genial nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 267 million Deproans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Deproan economy, worth 6.19 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 23,172 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and truancy levels are on the rise ever since school registers were banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Depro's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Depro is ranked 154,814th in the world and 320th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 51.72 on the Human Development Index.
