The Dictatorship of -Dumbasslandia- is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 283 million Dumbasslandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.2%.

The sizeable but inefficient -Dumbasslandia-ian economy, worth 11.5 trillion $hit Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 40,777 $hit Coins, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, spies caught in -Dumbasslandia- are never heard from again, most academic research has ground to a halt, and research grant proposals read like political diatribes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Dumbasslandia-'s national animal is the wingless flying hippo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

-Dumbasslandia- is ranked 159,225th in the world and 5,816th in the South Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,825.22 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
