The Western Protectorate of Dalimbar is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Protector General Markus Briand with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 31.515 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Andreisberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.1%.

The all-consuming Dalimbari economy, worth a remarkable 2,653 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 84,206 Dali's patiences, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 354,303 per year while the poor average 12,987, a ratio of 27.3 to 1.

Religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, and the military has gone fission for more funding. 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 20,467th in the world and 470th in the West Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 61.16 Quips Per Hour.
