The Principality of Dietse-Doggerbank is a huge, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 511 million Dietse-Doggerbankians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 55.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Dietse-Doggerbankian economy, worth 19.7 trillion Gulden-Francs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,492 Gulden-Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

On graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, and disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Dietse-Doggerbankians's kindness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dietse-Doggerbank's national animal is the Herring, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Dietse-Doggerbank is ranked 162,813th in the world and 191st in KAISERREICH for Fattest Citizens, with 9.82 Obesity Rate.
