The Absolute Kingdom of Dytarma is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dyérkovak Bulan II with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, devout population of 6.838 billion Dytarmen enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ranë. The average income tax rate is 4.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Dytarmish economy, worth 868 trillion Dyts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Gambling, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 127,016 Dyts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon, an alabaster statue of an ancient cat-deity takes pride of place in the centre of Ranë, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, and theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Dytarma's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Dytarmism.

Dytarma is ranked 29,217th in the world and 5th in Solid Kingdom for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3,541.88 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
