The United Socialist States of Determistan is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 308 million Determistanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Queerdim. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Determistanian economy, worth 12.1 trillion Genderfluids 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Average income is 39,359 Genderfluids, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions of Genderfluids are being poured into a space program, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Determistan's national animal is the Rainbow Boa, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Determistan is ranked 6,343rd in the world and 91st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.84 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
