The People's Republic of Dithmarse is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Karl Liebknecht with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.076 billion Dithmarseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heissen. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Dithmarsean economy, worth 337 trillion Ducats 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 162,588 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Too many hyper-intelligent chefs can spoil the allegorical broth, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, frustrated women are overjoyed at the provision of communal washing machines, and government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dithmarse's national animal is the cat and herring, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Libertarian Socialism.

Dithmarse is ranked 5,195th in the world and 6th in Soviet Democracy for Largest Governments, scoring 40.55 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
