The Grand Duchy of Diogott is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Duke Karl Eduard II with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, pith helmet sales, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 13.081 billion Diotians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merano. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.
The enormous but inefficient Diotian economy, worth a remarkable 1,280 trillion kreuzers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 97,914 kreuzers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government maintains that belief brings greater security than money or a roof, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", and a popular artist is claiming that a raw steak with a dog turd on it is a portrait of Grand Duke Karl Eduard II. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Diogott's national animal is the Charles Edward Lemur, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
