The Sleepy Floaty Isles of Dienes is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by a lonely baker with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 21.963 billion Dienesians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

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 Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hope. The average income tax rate is 71%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology industries.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', 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 11th in Wysteria and 60th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 739 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
