The Sleepy Floaty Isles of Dienes is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by a lonely baker with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 21.807 billion Dienesians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70%. 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, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, billions of Unicycles are being blown on orbital weapons development, and the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars. 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 97th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 51 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Dienes is currently considering its options.
