The Republic of Diffsylvania is a large, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 56 million Diffsylvanians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The very strong Diffsylvanian economy, worth 3.39 trillion Kansus a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 60,530 Kansus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 261,015 per year while the poor average 8,948, a ratio of 29.2 to 1.

Turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, the well-off can quite literally buy extra votes, and it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Diffsylvania's national animal is the Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Diffsylvania is ranked 90,719th in the world and 4,044th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,069.98 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
