Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Duchy Duchy Dutch of Le Duche is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ronald Grump with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, pith helmet sales, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.444 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.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lindblum. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Le Duchean economy, worth an astonishing 21,135 trillion Trumps a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 830,682 Trumps, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,613,397 per year while the poor average 45,460, a ratio of 123 to 1.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of Le Duche's historical leaders at Mount Rushless, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Le Duche's national animal is the Melania, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Le Duche is ranked 57th in the world and 1st in Flavian Amphitheatre for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 53,831.41 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
