The People's Republic of Dilwyn is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Zeke Von Genbu with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.534 billion Dilwynians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dylemin. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dilwynian economy, worth 222 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 144,859 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, Elephant is one of the most popular forenames in Dilwyn, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, and t-shirts displaying a photo of Zeke Von Genbu performing the Full-Monty are selling out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dilwyn's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dilwyn is ranked 8,876th in the world and 38th in Refugia for Healthiest Citizens, with 15.68 bananas ingested per day.
