The Grand Duchy of Dauershire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 20.506 billion Dauershireans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
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 6%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, and military funding has been stripped back. 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.
