The United Socialist States of Diovstan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 356 million Diovstanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Diovstanian economy, worth 20.4 trillion Diovs 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 Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 57,415 Diovs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, all artwork is carefully screened for offensive material, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Diovstan's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Diovstan is ranked 129,794th in the world and 11th in Warschauer Pakt for Highest Drug Use, scoring 26.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
