The Sleepy Floaty Isles of Dienes is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by a lonely baker with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 20.662 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hope. The average income tax rate is 55%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology industries.

Homeless people are frequently charged with trespassing on public property, Teddy Bears are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide, children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dienes's national animal is the Teddy Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is watermelon juggling, and its currency is the Unicycle.

Dienes is ranked 17th in Wysteria and 84th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 29 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
