The Militarized Collective of Dopoka is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by His Imperial Majesty Konrad Emacio with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.986 billion Dopokans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Network Hub Zero. The average income tax rate is 55.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Dopokan economy, worth 221 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 an impressive 111,730 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, the nation's arms dealers guarantee discretion and untraceable transactions, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and Dopokan watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dopoka's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State-worship.

Dopoka is ranked 91,663rd in the world and 485th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Developed, scoring 51.73 on the Human Development Index.
