OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grand Duchy of Dauershire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 20.826 billion Dauershireans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Law & Order are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 7%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Dauershire City Times is sold out. 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 41st in Europe and 6,334th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 5 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
