The Dictatorship of Dnelrog is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 205 million Dnelrogians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Dnelrogian economy, worth 7.22 trillion Nesors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 35,214 Nesors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, organ donation is compulsory, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and euthanasia is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dnelrog's national animal is the Nogard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Dnelrog is ranked 217,988th in the world and 1st in World Authoritarian Nations for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 9,367.12 Standard Monetary Units.
