Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend Cards


Population4.076 billion



The Card Kingdom of Debussy is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Clancy with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.076 billion Lazarenes enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Debussyian economy, worth 626 trillion Banks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,641 Banks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Debussyian Moonshine", the government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Debussy's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cards.

Debussy is ranked 236,514th in the world and 7,952nd in Lazarus for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -17.69 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
