The United Socialist States of Daiamid is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Sovet Komissarov with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.372 billion Daiamidians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Komunnograd. The average income tax rate is 89.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Daiamidian economy, worth 214 trillion decas 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. 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 156,313 decas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Solid steel breastplates are in fashion amongst city drivers, ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, the big red machine has ground to a halt, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Daiamid's national animal is the pigus capitalistus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Enlightened supramaterialism.

Daiamid is ranked 13,188th in the world and 313th in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.98 years.
