The Socialist Peoples' Republic of Daulmark is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Alexander Novikov with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory gun ownership, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.893 billion Daulmarkians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Levastok. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Daulmarkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,367 trillion Dyoshkas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 232,008 Dyoshkas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Daulmark's hospitals, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, and there is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Daulmark's national animal is the Crimson Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Daulmark is ranked 1,613th in the world and 7th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 99.26 Effective Tax Rate.
