The Grand Duchy of Dauershire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 21.21 billion Dauershireans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Law & Order are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 11%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
The people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, euthanasia is legal, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Dauershire's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the euro.
