Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Stratocracy of Duzels is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Commisar Sombrero with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.953 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 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Duzelsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,590 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 228,682 Bitss, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Grazing lands are filled with cattle wearing odd-looking anti-pollution devices, 200 mph car chases are a frequent sight on the otherwise empty motorways, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ponyism.

Duzels is ranked 177,551st in the world and 69th in Pony Lands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 4.48 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
