The Technocratic Space Kingdom of Destyntine is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Destyn IX with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.544 billion Destynians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyståska. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Destynic economy, worth 273 trillion Kroners a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,453 Kroners, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low, military spending is on the increase, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Destyntine's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Modernized Norse Paganism.

Destyntine is ranked 173,131st in the world and 938th in Europe for Most Extreme, scoring 11.87 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
