Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Benevolent Dictatorship of The Dourian Embassy is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Treize Dreizehn with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.709 billion Dourians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Douria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Dourian economy, worth a remarkable 3,212 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 299,938 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 902,514 per year while the poor average 77,761, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

The wreckages of bombed planes that litter The Dourian Embassy are highly popular tourist destinations, almost all of The Dourian Embassy's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, suburban families are finding themselves increasingly short on food as they waste precious water on their lawns, and kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun". Crime is totally unknown. The Dourian Embassy's national animal is the raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Holy Thirteen.

The Dourian Embassy is ranked 6,067th in the world and 183rd in Osiris for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 8,045.12 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
