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 keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.329 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.

Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Le Duche with a very polite populace, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. 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 112,207th in the world for Best Weather, with -5,875 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
