The Empire of Duzels is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Commisar Sombrero with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.157 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sombrero City. The average income tax rate is 45%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Gambling and Arms Manufacturing.

Gun ownership is compulsory, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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, its national religion is Ponyism, and its currency is the Bits.

Duzels is ranked 67th in Pony Lands and 44,434th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 101 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
