The Physician's Oath of DoNoHarm is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Doctor with an iron fist, and renowned for its lack of airports, national health service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.541 billion patients are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Surgery. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The large but stagnant DoNoHarmian economy, worth 316 trillion mgs of olanzapine a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 48,370 mgs of olanzapine, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, it is illegal to liberate slaves, and everyone apparently sends The Doctor hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. DoNoHarm's national animal is the lab rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is enlightened science.

DoNoHarm is ranked 162,354th in the world and 418th in New Western Atlantic for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
