The Constitutional Monarchy of Dobyse is a very large, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 170 million Dobyseans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 29.8%.

The very strong Dobysean economy, worth 12.2 trillion plinks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 72,048 plinks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', Eagle is one of the most popular forenames in Dobyse, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dobyse's national animal is the eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Dobyse is ranked 176,811th in the world and 150th in New Western Empire for Most Primitive, scoring -160.35 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
