The House of Doughertania is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Dagon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.968 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Commerce, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Haven. The average income tax rate is 83%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing industries.

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 well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, and its currency is the Docdollar.

Doughertania is ranked 2,751st in Lazarus and 95,964th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -3 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
