The Benevolent Dictatorship of The Dourian Embassy is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Treize Dreizehn with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.291 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, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Douria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Dourian economy, worth a remarkable 3,385 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 299,877 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 899,633 per year while the poor average 78,077, a ratio of 11.5 to 1.
Protests are prohibited from blocking traffic, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions, and the nation is cleaning up after a national night of celebration left most people with headaches and dim memories (The Dourian Embassy has found 4 easter eggs). 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.
