The Federal Union of States of Denieria is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Gerald Herman Schmidt with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.025 billion Denierians 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, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gutenberg. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Denierian economy, worth a remarkable 1,540 trillion Denierian Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 191,945 Denierian Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Re-education centers are being added to most prisons, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Denieria's national animal is the White Tailed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Denieria is ranked 150,436th in the world and 4,833rd in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -1.55 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
