The Grand Duchy of Dauershire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 35.622 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 dominated by the Department of Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Dauershirean economy, worth a remarkable 8,303 trillion euros a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 233,094 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every school is receiving a brand new eraser, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, and Leader is considering changing the Dauershirean flag to one with more glitter. 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 4,118th in the world and 29th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6,970.13 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
