The Sleepy Floaty Isles of Dienes is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by a lonely baker with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 21.44 billion Dienesians 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 69%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology industries.

The Hanging Gardens account for half of Hope's water use, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, and many junior high school teachers minor in midwifery. 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 155th in Wysteria and 110,575th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -65 Whatever.
