We study the relationship between many natural conditions that one can put on a diffeological vector space, including being fine or projective, having enough smooth (or smooth linear) functions to separate points, having a diffeology determined by the smooth linear functionals, and more. Our main result is that the majority of the conditions fit into a total order. We also give many examples in order to show which implications do not hold.
