The Circumbinary Binary Planets of Dirdel and Binary is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Binarius with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 13.9 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Equality and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dirdelia. The average income tax rate is 71%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
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, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the Binary.
