The People's Communist Republic of Dandeleria is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Colonel Álvaro Ramírez with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, avowedly heterosexual populace, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.108 billion Dandelerians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norakocha. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Dandelerian economy, worth 444 trillion narlas 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 Basket Weaving and Furniture Restoration. 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 48,755 narlas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

White privilege is a real thing, workers' complaints never reach central planning, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, and politicians take citizens for idiots. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Dandeleria's national animal is the ebola virus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of DEAREST LEADER.

Dandeleria is ranked 204,987th in the world and 132nd in Psychotic Dictatorships for Most Politically Free, scoring zero on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
