The Federative Republic of Dives Patriae is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Nikita Kruschev with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.168 billion Diveneans 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, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Divenean economy, worth 221 trillion Diveons 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 impressive 190,057 Diveons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, declaring that "some kids are just born evil" is not endearing Nikita Kruschev to progressive thinkers, on-duty Air Dives Patriae flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, and women no longer need to pepper conversations with incessant references to fictitious husbands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dives Patriae's national animal is the Golden owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Dives Patriae is ranked 42,951st in the world and 58th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 264,709 Standard Monetary Units.
