The Reunited Republic of Daklland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Rekc Beligins with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.848 billion Daklishes are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Josburg. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Daklish economy, worth 713 trillion Daklish Stamps 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. 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 an amazing 250,636 Daklish Stamps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's soldiers often believe they're in the Air Force, the government is encouraging violence on television, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, and the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Daklland's national animal is the Golden Sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Judaism.

Daklland is ranked 90,993rd in the world and 22nd in Avaldonia for Nudest, with 169.5 cheeks per square mile.
