The Three Coins in a Fountain of D053 is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Bmongo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.098 billion Bdangas 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bdangaville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Bdangish economy, worth 577 trillion Banks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 113,197 Banks, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, the nation is cleaning up after a national night of celebration left most people with headaches and dim memories (D053 has found 7 easter eggs), an IT mega-corporation has a patent pending on the rectangle, and folk singers have replaced personal injury lawyers in being ridiculed as "ambulance chasers". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. D053's national animal is the Cheetah, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is BdingoBdango.

D053 is ranked 29,354th in the world and 18th in Windows for Largest Governments, scoring 22.56 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
