The Armed Republic of Dinggy Mung Shlong is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 398 million Dinggy Mung Shlongians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.0%.

The sizeable but inefficient Dinggy Mung Shlongian economy, worth 19.4 trillion mung bucks 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, 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 48,836 mung bucks, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", Dinggy Mung Shlongians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dinggy Mung Shlong's national animal is the blue footed booby.

Dinggy Mung Shlong is ranked 139,870th in the world and 6,093rd in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring -64 on the Rand Index.
