The Commonwealth of Douzx is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Androus Antonius with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.321 billion Douzians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sileca. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped Douzxian economy, worth 158 trillion Unios a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 29,770 Unios, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Almost all of Douzx's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, Max Barry is this year's Miss Douzx, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Douzx's national animal is the Duox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
