The Deseret Region is an organization to promote and develop a completely self suffcient region within the United States. This region is called the Deseret Region. Our goal is to revolutionize areas of infrastructure(i.e. transportation, argiculture, energy, etc.) so that the the Deseret Region can provide our own needs. The Deseret Region gets its name and boundaries from the State of Deseret which was proposed back in the 1850's.
