The Pacifican nation of Dilber is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.301 billion Dilberians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dilberian economy, worth a remarkable 1,809 trillion vps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 194,530 vps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Workers can choose whether they prefer offices that smell of pungent body odor or whale vomit, the government funds large training centres to turn gremlins into functioning members of society, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dilber's national animal is the gremlin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dilber is ranked 157,603rd in the world and 6,225th in the West Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -494.11 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
