The National Corporate Syndicate of Dyssia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Billionaire Benny G Rockefeller with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.907 billion wage-slaves are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital City Inc Ltd. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient wage-slaving economy, worth a remarkable 1,926 trillion blüts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 176,666 blüts, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,628,470 per year while the poor average 1,927, a ratio of 845 to 1.

Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, wanting a better life for your child is prohibited by a clause in the criminal code, charity workers dole out hardtack from behind designer sunglasses, and punk rockers smash it up and then clean it up. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Dyssia's national animal is the political dissenter, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodox Capitalism.

Dyssia is ranked 28,110th in the world and 95th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 11,140.37 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
