Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Stratocracy of Duzels is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Commisar Sombrero with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.393 billion Duzelsians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sombrero City. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Duzelsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,443 trillion Bitss a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 225,745 Bitss, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, and the "fire department" is often called to remove offensive religious texts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duzels's national animal is the Pony, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ponyism.

Duzels is ranked 17,830th in the world and 23rd in Pony Lands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,269.55 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
