The Physician's Oath of DoNoHarm is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Doctor with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.954 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 sluggish DoNoHarmian economy, worth 382 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 and Basket Weaving. 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 55,033 mgs of olanzapine, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Calling out of the blue has become taboo, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, and citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones. 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 66,658th in the world and 172nd in Forest for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,658.57 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
