The Absolute State of Dialogos is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Temi Stakhanne with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.45 billion Dialis 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nucleo. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Diali economy, worth 167 trillion aures a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,244 aures, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, bronze and marble supplies are running low as sculptors depict full-figured subjects, government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dialogos's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Dialogos is ranked 42,386th in the world and 210th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.86 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
