Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Autocracy of Duzels is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Commisar Sombrero with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, parental licensing program, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.793 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 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Duzelsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,235 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 213,309 Bitss, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Late night adverts for breast milk co-ops regularly win pornography industry awards, former arsonists can be found on local fire brigades, owning a tractor is widely regarded as an essential prerequisite to most government positions, 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ponyism.

Duzels is ranked 174,693rd in the world and 71st in Pony Lands for Longest Average Lifespans, with 29.87 Years.
