The Circumbinary Binary Planets of Dirdel and Binary is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Binarius with an even hand, and notable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 14.259 billion Binarian Bugs have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Spirituality are also considered important, while Social Policy and Industry aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dirdelia. The average income tax rate is 62.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Insectoid economy, worth 738 trillion Binaries a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is 51,794 Binaries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the government has taken a 'sort it out yourselves' approach to fighting malaria, the nation refuses to provide international aid, and the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Binarian bird hunting institutions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dirdel and Binary's national animal is the Binarian bird and its national religion is Christianity.
