The State of Dolgo is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Gerwon Secco with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The compassionate, cynical population of 777 million Dolgo are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nondu. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dolgo economy, worth 105 trillion mincs a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,260 mincs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The only soporific permitted during sermons is the preacher's voice, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, treason is relative, and the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dolgo's national animal is the tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dolgo is ranked 209,988th in the world and 13th in Anomie for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -150.07 on the Hayek Index.
