The Lighthouse Theocracy of Gently Dirken is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the Ccus Est Iustitia Collective with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 1.888 billion Dirkenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xonter. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gently Dirkenian economy, worth 200 trillion esops a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 106,234 esops, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been banned for advocating gluttony. Crime is totally unknown. Gently Dirken's national animal is the kentrosaurus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gently Dirken is ranked 2,264th in the world and 1st in Rain Falling In a Digital Void for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 11,486.84 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
