The Vicar of Freud of Democatic Donkeys is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Evil McMasterdonia with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 14.314 billion Democatic Donkeynesians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tangerine Dream. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Democatic Donkeynesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,698 trillion snakes 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 a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing and Information Technology. 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 impressive 118,642 snakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and the monarch frequently needs protecting from misfiring protection. Crime is totally unknown. Democatic Donkeys's national animal is the sparkle pony, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Jim Morrisonism.

Democatic Donkeys is ranked 231,856th in the world and 8,704th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -313.72 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
