The Dominion of Dylanopolis is a very large, pleasant nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-working, democratic population of 155 million Dylanopolisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 9.3%.

The strong Dylanopolisian economy, worth 9.86 trillion Dylanopolis Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is 63,584 Dylanopolis Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, devotion to God is only skin-deep, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Dylanopolis's national animal is the Orange Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Dylanopolis is ranked 28,526th in the world and 2nd in Union of Conservative Nations s for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,876.92 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
