The Absolute Posadist Empire of Dekks is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Nuclear Jeb with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.695 billion Dekksians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jeb Central. The average income tax rate is 85.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dekksian economy, worth a remarkable 1,418 trillion Nuclear Bombs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 302,036 Nuclear Bombs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Religious people are committed to mental institutions for treatment, stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, and the nation is a world leader in martyrs per capita. Crime is totally unknown. Dekks's national animal is the Centrist, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Posadism-Garfieldism.

Dekks is ranked 225,162nd in the world and 478th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Devout, with 1.84 Prayers Per Hour.
