Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Duzels is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Commisar Sombrero with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.127 billion Duzelsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sombrero City. The average income tax rate is 61.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Duzelsian economy, worth 371 trillion Bitss a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,837 Bitss, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

All new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, the government spends millions of Bitss every year prosecuting spammers, local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duzels's national animal is the Pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ponyism.

Duzels is ranked 58th in Pony Lands and 19,950th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
