The United Kingdom of Deagane is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.569 billion Deaganeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 30.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Deaganean economy, worth 111 trillion Latinums 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. 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 43,540 Latinums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The military struggles with recruitment, kids refer to anything below the neck as "the parts that shall not be named", no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, and the moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP. Crime is moderate. Deagane's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Deagane is ranked 142,175th in the world and 5,519th in Balder for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 947.69 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
