The The Isolationist Empire of Dimoniquid is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Ulrick with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.56 billion Dimonicae are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verris Hive Citadel. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Dimonici economy, worth a remarkable 6,122 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 329,850 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Visions of giant pink three horned spotted lions are a common side effect after Dimonicae eat their meals, school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Dimoniquid, and the nation's new currency features full-length portraits of Emperor Ulrick in ermine and velvet garb. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Dimoniquid's national animal is the three horned spotted lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Verris Unitology.

Dimoniquid is ranked 205,187th in the world and 7,686th in Lazarus for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 6.31 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
