Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Duchy of Dauershire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 26.502 billion Dauershireans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The thriving Dauershirean economy, worth a remarkable 5,333 trillion euros a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 201,244 euros, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and Leader's speeches are beloved by insomniacs. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Dauershire's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dauershire is ranked 8,750th in the world and 39th in Europe for Largest Black Market, with 27.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
