Statistic-Dime (SD) — colloquially spelled without the hyphen or erroneously capitalised "DIME", and officially The Statistic-Dime Company — is an intermicronational non-profit private company headquartered in New Yera, Australis. Its primary business is creating and running surveys, indices, awards, electoral opinion polls, standardisations and other developmental projects, spread across Statistic-Dime's three components; Dime, Roscoe Statistics, and Statistic-Fire, although for simplicity's sake nearly every public project has been labelled as being solely under Statistic-Dime. Founded as a New Eiffelic organisation headquartered in New Leeds by entrepreneur Zarel Smith from the merger of Statistic-Fire and DIME in October 2019, the company began to grow exponentially. Following New Eiffel's dissolution in November 2020, the company had no national back, and in December, the company was incorporated as an Australissian organisation and incorporated Roscoe Statistics, and Smith appointed Daniel Hamilton as CEO and left the organisation to commence his break from the micronational community. Statistic-Dime's projects include Microcode — the largest standardisation for two-letter country codes — the highly publicised Micronationalist of the Month and Year awards, and Project Micronation. It also created the MicroWiki's 25 Most Influential for 2020 list, with another edition planned for the year 2021. Statistic-Dime's largest surveys, the GUM Member States Positivity Survey, MicroWiki's Top 25 and annual LGBT Rights Indices and MicroWiki General Surveys have received critical acclaim, and totalled over 200 responses.

The GUM Member States Positivity Survey (GUM-MSPS or MSPS) was a survey conducted by Zedekiah Smith from Statistic-Dime asking participants to rank full member states of the Grand Unified Micronational based on how positively said participant viewed them. It was held from 7–10 July 2020 in two instalments, the first from 7–8 July 2020 with 20 respondents, and the second from 9–10 July with a further 20 respondents, giving a total final of 40. The survey was Smith's eight survey (induing joint-ones). The ranking system was a scale of 1 to 5, similar to that of a Likert scale; 1 being not positive, and 5 being very positive. The top three highest scores were jointly New Eiffel, Posaf and Essexia (all with 4.2), while the lowest were Jupiter (2.7), Nemkhav Federation (2.9) and Hak'hanna and Hrafnarfjall (both 3.0). On the first survey, the results were New Eiffel (4.5), Posaf (4.4) and Essexia (4.3), while the lowest were Hrafnarfjall, Jupiter (both 2.8) and Juclandia (2.9). Smith claimed that the survey was a large success "due to the fact that instead of asking participants to rank [micronations] by popularity, or development (which is always complete speculation of the participants), it was simply asking them to rank by their own opinion of how positively or well they viewed said nation, and thus the survey could not be inaccurate or incorrect." The survey was eventually brought back in 2021 under a new format by the Statistics Secretary of the GUM, Daniel Hamilton, showing only the top fifteen highest scoring nations, top three being Essexia (with 123), Adammia and the Uber-Essian Union (both with 116).
