Debian is firmly a DIY distro, in the sense that it has everything, you select only the packages you need (what some people call a meta-distro). By design there isn't even a single supported desktop or kernel (although there are defaults). The core is a minimal system; on top of it you can build a multi-environment desktop or a barebones server.
