The Holy Empire of Donutlia is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Super Pope with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 943 million Donutlians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bear Claw. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Donutlian economy, worth 118 trillion Pastries a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 125,140 Pastries, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 360,340 per year while the poor average 34,519, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

Internet trolls are considered valiant supporters of the right to free speech, engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, millions of Pastries have been thrown into a project to find the cure for Mad Dwarf Moose Disease, and teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Donutlia's national animal is the Dwarf Moose, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Donutlia is ranked 25,734th in the world and 1,309th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,456.5 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
