The United Kingdom of Dizgovzy is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Pjotr IX and PM Alex Tashenov with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.544 billion Dizgovzians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bargs ana Dizgovi. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dizgovzian economy, worth 633 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,349 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dizgovzy's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Dizgovzy is ranked 7,186th in the world and 25th in Thaecia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,521.02 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
