The Ozone friendly Lemmings of Just Dig is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the player with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.169 billion Lemmings 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.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Just Dig's national animal is the Lemming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is I got nothing for this one.
