The Nuclear Landmine of Dalimbar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Protector General Markus Briand with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.37 billion Dalimbari are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Andreisberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.9%.

The all-consuming Dalimbari economy, worth a remarkable 2,629 trillion Dali's patiences 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, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology 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 83,830 Dali's patiences, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 365,754 per year while the poor average 12,141, a ratio of 30.1 to 1.

A new "thought police" branch is being developed, employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, and patriots insist that size does matter. Crime 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 Dalism.

Dalimbar is ranked 191,146th in the world and 5,509th in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 12,141.25 Standard Monetary Units.
