The Hyper-Industrialized Empire of Dictationapore is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Count Arimis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, prohibition of alcohol, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.337 billion Dictatians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dictationnati. The average income tax rate is 36.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Dictatian economy, worth a remarkable 5,291 trillion Krónas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 396,727 Krónas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The only thing that can pin down a "superhero" is red tape, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, there's no representation without taxation, and gun-wielding criminals always wear appropriate eye and ear protection. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dictationapore's national animal is the Tree Squid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Industrianism.

Dictationapore is ranked 3,161st in the world and 3rd in One big Island for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 621.15 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
