The Militarized State of Dat Countreh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dat Leedur with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.074 billion Engineers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dat Capital. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Dat Countrehian economy, worth a remarkable 5,439 trillion Ration Stamps 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 amazing 450,534 Ration Stamps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, the Dat Countrehian war navy contains an oddly large number of luxury yachts and cruise liners, a light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Dat Countreh's national animal is the Human, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Engineering.

Dat Countreh is ranked 1,012th in the world and 4th in Europeia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 24,003.51 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
