The Spacefaring Society of Dhaeland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.959 billion Dhaelanders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varisian City. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Dhaelandian economy, worth 920 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 154,545 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, there is a dearth of space for new houses, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Varisian City" t-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dhaeland's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Transhumanism.

Dhaeland is ranked 4,248th in the world and 204th in Osiris for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 59.87 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
