The Kingdom of Damsmel is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by General Glacier Polar with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 897 million Damsmelians 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 relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Artica. The average income tax rate is 38.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Damsmelian economy, worth 125 trillion credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,900 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Artica" t-shirts, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, Damsmel recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, and claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Damsmel's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Damsmel is ranked 20,590th in the world and 1,106th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 72,077.09 Standard Monetary Units.
