Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Sleepy Floaty Isles of Dienes is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a lonely baker with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 23.53 billion Dienesians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hope. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Dienesian economy, worth an astonishing 14,121 trillion Unicycles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 600,169 Unicycles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, and concussed Teddy Bearball players cannot remember their lineup position. Crime is totally unknown. Dienes's national animal is the Teddy Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is watermelon juggling.

Dienes is ranked 92nd in the world and 5th in Wysteria for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 18,601.42 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
