The Friendly Republic of Dennisov is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Siddhārtha Gautama with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 33.617 billion Dennisovians 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Social Policy, Environment, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baromcona. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Dennisovian economy, worth a remarkable 8,056 trillion quixotes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 239,658 quixotes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The banshee wail foretells skies of death, the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, and the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Dennisov's national animal is the beardog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Dennisov is ranked 157,846th in the world and 5,321st in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -31.99 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
