The Nomadic Peoples of The Dizonids is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 925 million Dizonidsians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dizonidsian economy, worth 103 trillion pence a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,428 pence, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and Air The Dizonids is rumored to receive more government funding than the Dizonidsian Air Force. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dizonids's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Dizonids is ranked 26,962nd in the world and 1,014th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,250.34 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
