The Caorach Glasa of DYP is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Whiskey Jim with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 24.996 billion DYPians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Bar. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong DYPian economy, worth a remarkable 1,540 trillion empty beer glasses 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 Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 61,628 empty beer glasses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination", over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, and the 'sing-a-long with Whiskey Jim' album is a popular souvenir. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DYP's national animal is the drunken sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

DYP is ranked 159,217th in the world and 6,822nd in the Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 73.85 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
