The God's Chosen Nation of Dictationapore is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Big Benji with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, complete lack of prisons, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 16.343 billion Dictatians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dictationnati. The average income tax rate is 57.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Dictatian economy, worth a remarkable 7,472 trillion Krónas a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 457,202 Krónas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, the government nonchalantly sells old nukes to other countries, and putting a mustache on a banknote is considered defacing a national monument. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dictationapore's national animal is the Tree Squid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dictism.

Dictationapore is ranked 240,468th in the world and 40th in One big Island for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.96 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
