The Republic of Dirkistan is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.732 billion Dirkistanians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dirkistanian economy, worth 945 trillion Dirks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 199,864 Dirks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, immigrants are required to salute the flag five times a day, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and nocturnal light pollution is mostly blue. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dirkistan's national animal is the 3 Headed Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dirkistan is ranked 35,849th in the world and 539th in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 796.4877541364 days.
