Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Duchy of Dauershire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 24.684 billion Dauershireans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Environment and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The very strong Dauershirean economy, worth a remarkable 4,375 trillion euros a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 177,241 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Dauershire's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dauershire is ranked 109,868th in the world and 336th in Europe for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 22.36 Whatever.
