The Kingdom of Damsmel is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by General Glacier Polar with an even hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 872 million Damsmelians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Artica. The average income tax rate is 37.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Damsmelian economy, worth 122 trillion credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 140,353 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", a petition to make petitions important again has been deemed unimportant, photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, and the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Damsmel's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Damsmel is ranked 160,882nd in the world and 7,118th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 26.34 on the Hayek Index.
