DingIrra

The Colony of DingIrra is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its lack of airports, zero percent divorce rate, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 5.442 billion DingIrrans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient DingIrran economy, worth 631 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Furniture Restoration industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 116,056 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates have hit a new low, the climate agreement has actually increased the volume of hot air in the atmosphere, nudity is frowned upon, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DingIrra's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

DingIrra is ranked 177,688th in the world and 5,976th in Osiris for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -13.8 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
