The Republic of Dylanana is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.863 billion Dylananans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dylanana DC. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dylananan economy, worth a remarkable 1,224 trillion Jakes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,358 Jakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities run on potato batteries, the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Dylananan Navy, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, and Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dylanana's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic.

Dylanana is ranked 203,193rd in the world and 189th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -5.69 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
