The Dictatorship of Dadleyland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dictator Dadley with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.973 billion Dadleylandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Education and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dadleytopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.7%.

The powerhouse Dadleylandian economy, worth 428 trillion Dadcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 144,101 Dadcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 434,251 per year while the poor average 37,279, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

The new Dadleylandian-made OS is buggier and more inconvenient than a horse-drawn carriage, bereaved families are assigned a new housemate the day after the funeral, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Dadleyland's national animal is the Ing-Ong, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dadleyism.

Dadleyland is ranked 244,916th in the world and 8,169th in Lazarus for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 22.24 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
