The Empire of Duzels is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Commisar Sombrero with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.24 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.

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 Welfare 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 60%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Gambling.

Men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and abortions are routinely performed in Duzels's hospitals. 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 144th in Pony Lands and 101,811th in the world for Best Weather, with -56 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
