The United Emirates of Doravo is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by TBD with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.73 billion Doravans 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of TBD. The average income tax rate is 60.2%.

The powerhouse Doravan economy, worth 566 trillion Doravan Rials a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,714 Doravan Rials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The "daily grind" consists of levelling up in tedious video games, the "fire department" is often called to remove offensive religious texts, the Doravo Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and toddler groups have taken over local libraries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Doravo's national animal is the Doravan Viper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Doravo is ranked 151,002nd in the world and 105th in The Western Isles for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.17 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
