The Federal Council Republics of Dausess is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.085 billion Dausessians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarsus. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Dausessian economy, worth a remarkable 4,791 trillion Aureuses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 280,452 Aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kissing cousins produce the heartiest babies, the price of freedom is about half a million Aureuses, lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, and proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dausess's national animal is the Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dausess is ranked 35,474th in the world and 74th in The Internationale for Most Politically Free, scoring 78.48 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
