The Dictatorship of DagsAttFlytta is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Filipolov Erikskinsky with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.13 billion Dagsattflyttares are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Little Eden. The average income tax rate is 57.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient DagsAttFlyttan economy, worth 181 trillion Dicta-Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 160,547 Dicta-Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, morality classes are compulsory for all school students, mysterious black helicopters menace farmers to ensure compliance with straitjacketing agricultural policies, and national stress about the waning heir-line is causing a rise in alopecia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DagsAttFlytta's national animal is the Dung beetle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

DagsAttFlytta is ranked 157,106th in the world and 8,039th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -24 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
