Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Duzels is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Commisar Sombrero with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.451 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 medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Education, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sombrero City. The average income tax rate is 58.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Duzelsian economy, worth 456 trillion Bitss a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 132,162 Bitss, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Political activists are routinely executed, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, the government has hired out-of-work fashion designers to design purses for men, and TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ponyism.

Duzels is ranked 35th in Pony Lands and 12,416th in the world for Safest, scoring 558.098 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
