OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Grand Duchy Duchy Dutch of Le Duche is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Ronald Grump with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.562 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.

A cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, almost all the visible space on TV screens is taken up by advertising, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens. 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 1st in Flavian Amphitheatre and 19th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 2,031 Insults Per Minute (net).
