The Federation of Duestchstien is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Alexei Matrovitch with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, enslaved workforce, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.953 billion Roys 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moschau. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Duestchstienian economy, worth 866 trillion Roys Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 124,639 Roys Rubles, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

People accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, and planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duestchstien's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Duestchstien is ranked 54,317th in the world and 7th in Cobalt Network for Most Pro-Market, scoring 54.22 on the Rand Index.
