Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Duchy of Dauershire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 25.079 billion Dauershireans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Environment, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The very strong Dauershirean economy, worth a remarkable 4,372 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 174,367 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, and the government has adopted a more thrifty attitude to administrating the country's needs. 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 140,781st in the world and 615th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -3.16 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
