The Republic of Dimech is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rhys with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 924 million Dimechians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mosta. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Dimechian economy, worth 75.2 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,369 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dimech has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, and factories grind to a halt every time there is an election. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dimech's national animal is the Dimechian Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dimech is ranked 8,062nd in the world and 449th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.62 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
