OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Sleepy Floaty Isles of Dienes is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a lonely baker with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 20.686 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 56%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology industries.

Computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, eminent domain has been abolished, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, and the government pours millions of Unicycles into rehabilitation programs annually. 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 59th in Wysteria and 28,847th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 84 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
