The Awesomness of Dephinland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Awesome with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 1.694 billion Dephinlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Awesomeness City. The average income tax rate is 92.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Dephinlandian economy, worth 171 trillion marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 101,384 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

People think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, the well-off can quite literally buy extra votes, and journalists often nap through tedious police press briefings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dephinland's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dancing.

Dephinland is ranked 3,731st in the world and 187th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 9,546.12 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
