The People's Communist Republic of Dandeleria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Colonel Augusto Ramirez with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, triple-decker prams, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.464 billion Dandelerians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norakocha. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Dandelerian economy, worth 676 trillion narlas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Basket Weaving and Furniture Restoration. 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 50,267 narlas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, and genetic researchers have been expelled. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Dandeleria's national animal is the Manorina, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of DEAREST LEADER.

Dandeleria is ranked 268,921st in the world and 6,708th in Osiris for Smartest Citizens, with 0.12 quips per hour.
