The Sleepy Floaty Isles of Dienes is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by a lonely baker with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 22.096 billion Dienesians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business 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. The average income tax rate is 10%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology industries.

Airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and the military has had to quell a recent insurrection by uninsured revolutionaries. 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 13th in Wysteria and 54th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 32 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
