The Republic of Dicha is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Counciler of Dicha with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 17.886 billion Dichans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bliss. The average income tax rate is 3.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dichan economy, worth a remarkable 3,962 trillion Moments a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 221,533 Moments, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Astronauts take one small step for Dicha and one giant step backward from confrontation, most citizens in Dicha are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, and government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations. Crime is totally unknown. Dicha's national animal is the Border Collie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dicha is ranked 156,421st in the world and 5,921st in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 23.78 on the Rand Index.
