The Holy Empire of United Dirtpile is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 306 million United Dirtpileans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 38.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish United Dirtpilean economy, worth 7.15 trillion bongbucks 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Book Publishing, 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 23,349 bongbucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, money is being desperately pumped into the ruined economy, the nation's infamous rickshaw ambulances often double as hearses, and you can call your arthritic immigrant neighbour for all your roof-tiling and guttering needs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Dirtpile's national animal is the jabberwocky, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Dirtpile is ranked 125,440th in the world and 6,179th in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 58.22 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
