Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Stratocracy of Duzels is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Commisar Sombrero with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.561 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 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Duzelsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,505 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 229,532 Bitss, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, when people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, and hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide. 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 14,693rd in the world and 8th in Pony Lands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 7,352.43 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
