The Sleepy Floaty Isles of Dienes is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by a lonely baker with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 21.468 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 68%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology industries.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. 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 14th in Wysteria and 64th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 30 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
