The United Communes of Dolarik is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Secretary Bogdan Ivanov with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.801 billion Dolarikians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Suterram. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dolarikian economy, worth 336 trillion kralls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 120,146 kralls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and the nation has an international reputation for compassion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dolarik's national animal is the Spotted Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dolarik is ranked 167,038th in the world and 374th in The Communist Bloc for Most Armed, with 0.25 Weapons Per Person.
