Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Benevolent Dictatorship of The Dourian Embassy is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Treize Dreizehn with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.385 billion Dourians 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 relatively small, corrupt, 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 56.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Dourian economy, worth a remarkable 2,575 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 248,006 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Raven Lasagne is a hit, Treize Dreizehn is worshipped as a god, trouble-makers are frequently turned in to the government to be 'recycled', and the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest raven hunting institutions. 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 171,503rd in the world and 4,268th in Osiris for Least Corrupt Governments, with 50.72 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
