The Empire of Duzels is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Commisar Sombrero with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.679 billion Duzelsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 Equality 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 70%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Tourism and Gambling.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and Duzels is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. 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 171st in Pony Lands and 113,200th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -204 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
