The Malevolent Dictatorship of DasAuto Island is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.258 billion Dasautians 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, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Digitatum. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient DasAuto Islandian economy, worth 59.3 trillion DAI pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip 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. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 47,115 DAI pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, and frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DasAuto Island's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

DasAuto Island is ranked 58,962nd in the world and 62nd in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,538.07 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
