The Whatevers of DiRito-Opolis is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by whoever with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 9.007 billion whatevers enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of wherever. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient whatever economy, worth a remarkable 1,984 trillion whatevers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 220,276 whatevers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, relatives of recent award winners find their trophies make stylish urns, former arsonists can be found on local fire brigades, and people are always complaining about dam builders running behind schedule. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. DiRito-Opolis's national animal is the whatever, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is whatever.

DiRito-Opolis is ranked 170,963rd in the world and 34th in Ridgefield for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -2.68 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
