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 notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.204 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 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Duzelsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,382 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, quite specialized 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 222,786 Bitss, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, and oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem. 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 2,992nd in the world and 8th in Pony Lands for Largest Governments, scoring 44.19 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
