Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Grand Duchy Duchy Dutch of Le Duche is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Ronald Grump with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.442 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 18,875 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, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 805,188 Trumps, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,806,828 per year while the poor average 4,005, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS, and Ronald Grump's mistress is the belle at many state balls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Le Duche's national animal is the Melania, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Le Duche is ranked 4th in Flavian Amphitheatre and 119,184th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -11,878 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
