The Kingdom of Dawsinian is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by King Dawsinian with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.378 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, liberal, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Environment is also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Town's End. Income tax is unheard of.

The very strong Dawsinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,356 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 Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 153,241 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Eight-year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, public enemies often walk home with spotless garments and crime records, and puppies given out free in marketing promotions are often tossed straight into the trash. 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 214,778th in the world and 296th in Wintreath for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -44.16 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
