The Vat-to-Volcano Pipeline of Gently Dirken is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Professor Rudename with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, otherworldly petting zoo, and state-planned economy.

Crime is totally unknown.

Gently Dirken is ranked 129,460th in the world and 9th in Rain Falling In a Digital Void for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 481.19 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
