The Armed Republic of Diamond Nations is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 470 million Diamonds 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jewelry City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.8%.

The all-consuming Crystal economy, worth 54.9 trillion Raids a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 116,911 Raids, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, the internet has been placed under government control, and pregnant women make easy targets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Diamond Nations's national animal is the Watershadow.

Diamond Nations is ranked 149,399th in the world and 5,826th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -53.62 on the Hayek Index.
