Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The House of Doughertania is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Dagon with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.943 billion Doughertanians 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.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Haven. The average income tax rate is 75.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Doughertanian economy, worth 695 trillion Docdollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,156 Docdollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, nude art is becoming wildly popular, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Doughertania's national animal is the Kraken, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Doughertania is ranked 308th in Lazarus and 6,628th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 372 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
