The Commonwealth of Dogsmouth is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Harriet Olmstead with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.385 billion Dogi are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oakport. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Dogi economy, worth 86.0 trillion bones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 15,962 bones, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Spousal homicide rates have tripled in recent months, kids who move from attending a public school in the city to the country often struggle in goat milking class, every week is blindness awareness week, and Harriet Olmstead has just been declared ruler of Dogsmouth in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dogsmouth's national animal is the wulf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dogsmouth is ranked 87,398th in the world and 61st in Atlantian Oceania for Healthiest Citizens, with 2.93 bananas ingested per day.
