The War Criminal of Dalimbar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Marshal Markus Briand with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and conspicuous electricity pylons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 39.239 billion Dalimbari 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Andreisberg. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dalimbari economy, worth a remarkable 5,044 trillion Free State Credits 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. 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 128,567 Free State Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

New "Worker's Strike" laws set out who is allowed to strike a worker, being sent to collections is more dangerous than ever, there's a mortuary next to every Dalimbari restaurant, and millions of Dalimbari are excellent swimmers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dalimbar's national animal is the Libreagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dalist Path.

Dalimbar is ranked 12,548th in the world and 224th in the West Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.38 years.
