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 compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.783 billion 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.

Commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, nudity is frowned upon, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. 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 12th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 43 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
