The Grand Duchy of Dyrland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Bengt II with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.112 billion Dyrlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dralmsteig. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Dyrlandian economy, worth 213 trillion Rovas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,186 Rovas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and noble feuds don't end until one side gets their point across. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dyrland's national animal is the Himalayan Brown Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dyrland is ranked 22,339th in the world and 65th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,080.53 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
