OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grand Duchy Duchy Dutch of Le Duche is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Ronald Grump with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.653 billion Le Duchies are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lindblum. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.

Citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is crippling. Le Duche's national animal is the Melania, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Trump.

Le Duche is ranked 8th in Flavian Amphitheatre and 116,446th in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring -7 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
