The Gay Chillroom of Dendrobium is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Primus Inter Pares with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.61 billion Dendrobiumians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dendrobium Amplium. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Dendrobiumian economy, worth 484 trillion nobiles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 86,387 nobiles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Too many developers spoil the codebase, the nation is Thaecia's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dendrobium's national animal is the giant atlas moth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Godsinianism.

Dendrobium is ranked 14,242nd in the world and 37th in Thaecia for Smartest Citizens, with 76.03 quips per hour.
