The Western Protectorate of Dalimbar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Protector General Markus Briand with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.741 billion Dalimbari are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Andreisberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.4%.

The all-consuming Dalimbari economy, worth a remarkable 2,810 trillion Dali's patiences 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, highly specialized black market in Information Technology and Cheese Exports. 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 85,825 Dali's patiences, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 361,873 per year while the poor average 13,189, a ratio of 27.4 to 1.

Officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, it's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise, a good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dalimbar's national animal is the Libreagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dalism.

Dalimbar is ranked 5,347th in the world and 91st in the West Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 2,810 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
