The Technocratic Space Kingdom of Destyntine is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Destyn IX with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.689 billion Destynians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Destynic economy, worth 312 trillion Kroners a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 185,139 Kroners, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same, some of the country's most famous photographers are animals, and the nation is Europe's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Destyntine's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Modernized Norse Paganism.

Destyntine is ranked 6,397th in the world and 129th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 92.74 on the Human Development Index.
