The Kingdom of Dawsinian is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Dawson I with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.51 billion Dawsinians 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 minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Welfare and Spirituality not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Town's End. Income tax is unheard of.

The strong Dawsinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,153 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 148,403 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders, the paparazzi publicize Royal scandals with the utmost delight, rural citizens live in terror of their local village constable, and to say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Dawsinian's national animal is the Duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Dawsinian is ranked 16,613th in the world and 7th in Wintreath for Highest Drug Use, scoring 114.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
