The Dictatorship of DagsAttFlytta is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Filipolov Erikskinsky with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, ritual sacrifices, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 957 million Dagsattflyttares 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Little Eden. The average income tax rate is 56.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient DagsAttFlyttan economy, worth 153 trillion Dicta-Dollars 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. 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 an impressive 160,573 Dicta-Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens compete to guess the time between the royal lady's contractions, cubicles often double as graves as citizens literally work themselves to death, merriment is might when jesters come calling with puppets in the night, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DagsAttFlytta's national animal is the Dung beetle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

DagsAttFlytta is ranked 3,569th in the world and 131st in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 177.47 Kickbacks Per Hour.
