The Republic of Dirkistan is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.821 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 62.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dirkistanian economy, worth 231 trillion Dirks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 127,347 Dirks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Corporate lobbying has been outlawed, devotion to God is only skin-deep, both criminals and civilians are DOA, and there's a bright dawn ahead for Dirkistan. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Dirkistan is ranked 21,935th in the world and 720th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,819.58 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
