The Grand Duchy of Dauershire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 19.934 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Law & Order are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 3%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Dauershire. 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.

Dauershire is ranked 54th in Europe and 11,187th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 4 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
