The Sleepy Floaty Isles of Dienes is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by a lonely baker with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 21.929 billion Dienesians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 69%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology industries.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, Dienes's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. 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 62nd in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 30 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
